Yes, but I thought you implied exactly that, because I thought you were
asking "Are the ten people not having root access even worth the
bother?". I didn't _mean_ to imply it, either, I _assumed_ you did,
because, frankly, I would have written the same question in a way that
wouldn't have me made that assumption. Not looking at your name before
replying did the rest.

Truth is a three-edged sword, and misunderstandings are great fun.
