User-tracking has _absolutely no place_ in VDR what-so-ever!!  It
serves no purpose and if someone wants to be added to a user list
somewhere, they can register themselves.  If someone really thinks
this is a brilliant idea, they can write a plugin to do it but it
should have no chance becoming a part of VDR core.

No offense but that's the worst idea I've heard by far.
