.... yet you may need this to fix some earlier goof.
not allowing the root user to do what he wants/needs to do is
obnoxious in that sense; when you need something like this, the system
is NOT operating in a normal way, and yet the owner thinks he can fix
his system as a last resort this way.
(while there is no real security upside to ban root from doing things
he can enable in the case the system is not yet hosed)
