True, but I also think we need to strike a balance to make sure things
aren't too much of a pain on the advanced user.  I mean, I like to think
of myself as an advanced user as well and I'd prefer things to not be
more difficult for me than they have to.

It seems like we can strike some balance here.  Perhaps we start by
merging the root password and create user screens together and offering
some sort of choice.  You can choose to set up a root password, or you
can choose to create a regular user account and put that user into sudo.
Default to the second choice.  I'm not sure if we can make that make
sense in the UI though.
