Bite me !

I want to run some of my boxes as root with X, not to mention the
problems this would cause trying to work with some cluster setups and
embedded boxes. I have X code then even requires to run UID 0.

Users should have the power to choose, even if you personally think its
a poor choice.

If you have such a security fetish then go play with firewall rules in
the corner and leave us users to decide how to operate our machines !
