  Since I haven't seen anyone address it, you probably don't want to 
completely invalidate root's password, on the off-chance the system ends 
up booted into single-user mode (e.g., in the event an at-boot fsck 
softfails).  Sure, there are ways around it (booting with init=/bin/sh 
for instance), but it's something to keep in mind.
