To change this behavior is just insanity.


Please stop throwing around the "sys admins will freak out" card, I'm
a sys admin and we do things correctly through provisioning using
kickstarts. It will be maybe a 3 line edit to a script. It was an
upstream choice, Fedora has historically remained compliant with
upstream so I imagine if you would like a change to be made on this
topic it would be most effective to discuss it with upstream.

Also, won't Ctrl+Alt+<Fn> still work to get you to a vt where you can at your choice kill X manually, or try to debug the problem further?
