I agree, a way of confusion...
Moreover this feather/option is not necesary as all unix systems ( all I 
know, so perhaps it's Posix ) provide us  the way to change the user id 
of a program/script with su.
And it doesn't provide any added security as the file containing the 
password in our scripts is root only readable too... Sorry Jan !

The crypto thread is really amazing !!! :-D
Wow, got to read and learn...
At begining was thinking I could help on something ! And join the team....
But reading C is a thing, adding security feather to existing code is a 
totaly other one !
Now I think I don't have enough  notions to give some signifiant help in 
such a project ( sigh ) !

So if Jan agree and estimate we could remove this feather I'm "volonter" 
for this little code-cleaning !
One little to do that you won't have to do....

Well next step would be something like...
$>locate clog.c
