[Discuss] webmin

It is great if you are handing over control to an inexperienced person.
Once you have tailored the modules (e.g. "Install Samba/delete
PostgreSQL") you've pretty much controlled what pieces of the system
they have access to. It also handles the interconnected issues ("When I
add a user, also add them to the Samba database.")
