I'm bothered by that comment. Since when is Fedora a "box" ? i thought it was more of a platform to build on (ok, more like: a luxury house around which you can build yourself a nice garden :-) ).

Here's my use scenario. I have a Zonbu here at home that I use as a "courtesy" system in my living room. That is, when I have visiting friends or relatives, they can use the system to check their email and such. Because the zonbu is so low-power and quiet, it's almost always on and the user logged in. Gdm is configured to autologin a guest user here.

The zonbu is also connected to my stereo system, which i can hear from my office. So i will often ssh into the zonbu and play an mp3 from the wireless-mounted NFS directory. Now PA means i have to log in as the same guest user, which is not necessarily ideal because of the nfs mount permissions, but certainly workable. Now of course i can just disable PA in this case and be happy. But you were asking for a specific scenario.
