Yeah.  Debian do not have such a useful single user mode.  I have a
long term plan to bring one to Debian, but a lot of packages need to
change for that to happen. :)

This is used by Ubuntu, which depend on sudo for admin access.

Btw, should we make a framework to allow the manual pages to be
transalated using .po files?  The current framework do not really
work, as the translated pages quickly become obsolete.

Please commit the Debian patches you believe make sense for this
release, and let me know which were commited.  I doubt I will have
time to do much testing this week, but would love a new release.  If
you got time to work on it, please push out a new release quickly. :)

Happy hacking,
