There tend to be few of those, and they are all well known.

Even merely adding the files may cause trouble. If nothing else, it uses up their disk quota. The users' home directories are sacred: Thou shalt not touch them.

The same thing applies (with few exceptions) to programs that do not read both a global and a per-user configuration. -- Please read <http://www.iki.fi/liw/mail-to-lasu.html> before mailing me.
