Either I remove su from shellutils, or I compile GNU su to work with
shadow, which makes shadow-su obsolete.  I really feel the latter
is the better solution, unless shadow-su comes with really cool
features which GNU su lacks.  The su manpage and info documentation
apply to GNU su, and not shadow's su.  That could cause confusion
for users.
