| This seems fair by me. I wonder whether this should deserve a

I've CC'd packages where I've been advogating nologin in Debian. The
binary is not yet widely used, so just move it so that we can get full
potential of nologin to forthcoming etch.

Than would be FreeBSD devel list. I'm not sure which list, but I've
added CC to:

    freebsd-qa at freebsd.org
| Jari, I'm OK with you cloning this bug report and reassign a "please
| move nologin to /bin" bug to login.

created new one.
