Interesting, this has never been raised as a problem until today ...
Going back through my mail archive, it looks like they started automatically adding that some
3 months ago. Not that they informed anyone about that, it just silently happened.

Eh ... Greg ... that's not how that works in the real world. In the real world, legal and IT lay
down the law and you just comply with that (or hack your way around it, if you can ;-).

I'm already fighting the good fight trying to keep control of my development machines
because IT would just love to get rid of those (since not under IT control .... oh dear ...)
And obviously, you cannot do kernel development on a machine without root access.
It's annoying enough already to require IT support to provide explicit permission to open
the task manager on my own company laptop ... grmbl.
