I don't recall seconding this -- bbut even if I did, please remove my
second. I'm not against this, it's just that I'm not a big advocate. I'm
of the opinion that more options can't hurt. If somebody thinks it gives
them security when it doesn't, then they don't understand it properly.
(Thus, I've merged both opinions)
