That's the point entirely of this. It is the prerogative of the user, not the system, or software to make that choice. I agree with you 122%. Logging in as root is a major security risk... but how dare some whack job programmer make that decision for me? Although I guess you are right, this conversation is much better suited on the VLC forums... it's hardly a Fedora/GNU/Linux issue.
