But that's the problem with changing this default. It applies to all
commands that userA runs. UserA will need to know the password of every
account (s)he will running a command as.
Running a command as userB will require userB's password. Running a
command as userC, will require userC's password. Running a command as
root will require root's password.
As long as this is not an issue ....
