i'm surprised emacs fanatics aren't taking this as a thrown
gauntlet.  not disappointed, only surprised. :)

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #40 from Will Trillich <will@serensoft.com>
Why are ROOT LOGINS EVIL? The main problem is this: if you have
a handful of trusted people who know the root password, you
can't tell -- not just by looking in the logs -- which one
logged in as root! But if you have them log in as themselves
first, they can "su" or "sudo" to get root privileges, and then
the logs will reflect who they actually are. To facilitate
this, empty out /etc/securetty (see /etc/pam.d/login for info).
