I'm going to qualify my statement regarding utmpx. I've gone through
the single unix specification and I actually think it is a reasonable
replacement for utmp. It doesn't solve any of the problems, mind you,
but it does add additional ut_* fields that we really ought to have.
So, in that respect, I think it is reasonable for us to remove utmp.h
and replace it with utmpx.h.
Again, it doesn't solve any of the problems so I would hesitate to do more
then just implement the basic API, but it doesn't make the problems any
worse then we already have with utmp.h.
