Hmm, that's an interesting idea actually. I have now added this to the
TODO list. That said, I wonder if for the sake of utmp/wtmp we really
want to invent new infrastructure here. I mean, utmp/wtmp is kinda
crufty, and should probably go away sooner or later. If we do this then
the main reason should not be utmp/wtmp, but something else. cgroups
might be a convincing idea here.
