Of course, you can just run 'mudpasswd' from the directory right now to
change the implementor's password and then log in as them with binary
pfiles.  If people want to change something, they'll do it somehow.

That and the fact that people shouldn't be able to get into your directory
in the first place, render that argument ineffective.
