Well. I would like to see a password program (running from autoexec.bat) with 
login/password database in crypted file which would set USER (logged in user) 
and HOME (user's profile directory) environment variables on exit.

Not for security (you can't have serious security with DOS), but to have 
customized settings (like keyboard layout) for each user (you can call 
%HOME%\profile.bat at the end of autoexec.bat).
