I like the new user type better. For example, I can see myself, a
domain coordinator, also as a system administrator. I don't think
domain coordinators for the physnet group want the risk of system
administrator though. The physnet group does want multiple users to
have the ability to be a domain coordinator though.

Don't take this personally Scott - I hate the name "HANDHOLD". I can
add new printers to the printcap file AND I can use printtool. I choose
printtool almost always. I don't think of it as HANDHOLDing, just and
easier interface. This is still a crappy name, but I think "GUI ADM" is
more along the lines. In fact, a button on the remote control that says
"ADM" or "RPM" seems the most intuitive to me.
