Let's avoid submitting -1 or +1 on things that haven't even been proposed. 
Thats just going to attract more mindless votes and discussion and lead the 
conversation to nowhereland. You are the first person to mention *requiring* 
a DBA password.

Later in this post you approve of optionally letting the installer create a 
DB. Would be more productive to start the post with this opinion. Why start 
so negative? I think this is just the urge to debate, but IMO is not so 
helpful on a 1000 person mailing list such as this.

I will mellow out now.
