No, because we don't want to give people ideas about changing that line
and then coming furious at us at upgrade time thet their startup script
was changed to the default values, etc.

Only today I have goyt three messages from different people asking me what
is their root number (!!!), just because after they logged in the system
promped them with a 'root#' string and they did not know their
"root number" - even the registration number did not work !!!
