Perhaps it is a philosophical issue, but my instinct tells me that my
root account should be self-contained. I should be able to log in as
root and startx. To have to log in as a user, and then su to root,
assumes there's a user account, and assumes that it is working. Both
of these conditions do not always exist. Further, when I am logged in
as user, when I su to root, I want to acquire root's environment.
