    Looks like that will be tonight's build and moving forward.

    Guess I'm going to sit this one out. I don't feel like a martyr.

    I think it's a good idea. People that need root don't lose anything and it's not an open security hole for those that don't need it.

    It's going to be a pain in the a$$ to have to set after every update.

    One check box is a huge pain?

    Also, do you have a reason to believe you have to re-set it after every update? No other OS settings are lost after an update. I was looking through the text and couldn't find an indication that you'd have to re-set it every time.
