How many Fedora installs are multi-user these days? How many
single-user desktops are we afflicting with a "you must ask an admin"
rule, when there is no admin besides the user sitting at the keyboard?
Any rule that tries to split users into "unpriviledged" and "admin"
I'm actually in agreement with DJ here, for systems that -are- multi-user,
then having some users being able to linger and others not makes sense.
What if the Anaconda team changed it so the "Make this user an
administrator" checkbox also enabled linger? This way those that are not
meant to be administrators (and therefore are likely not 'advanced users')
can't persist by default
