Since Novell won't give details on their encryption method (at least, they
didn't to me,) I wouldn't rely on it being crack-proof. I seem to remember
an ad from a small software house in France that boiled down to "So, you
forgot your supervisor password ? No sweat ! Just send us a copy of your
bindery (= users + groups database) and we'll find it out for you." Not
sure it would stand trial, but still scares the <expletive> out of me.
