Can not agree more with Bo ! Within last 5 years I did not use admin
commands for any other reason then the two mentioned below and would be
really, really unhappy if I could not do those two tasks. 
May be, changing log message command can be user command allowed for the
author (and admin) ?
Best Regards to all,

> unusable binaries (exe file for instance) get committed. THis
