Any estimate how big the penalty is ?

Also is it just a load-time penalty or continuous ?

If you're referring to the unix-socket authentication, the Debian
patch for 7.1.X is where it came from--it wasn't in mainline until
7.2.

The developers obviously think so.  Whether it's true for you, who

I was more refering to the on-disk encrypted password. A user (which
have root) found the password in two minutes with grep...

Good enough. I'll download it and try it out then. Thanx.
