Because I don't like to be spammed by what the system administrator
of the system calls important.  Guess I've got an account on 10 Debian
boxes with 10 different admins.  If only three decide to turn this on,
I'd get (more or less) the same mail three times at least.  Each day.
Each week.  Each month.  Each year.

I'd rather configure this on a per-user basis.
