Yes - the whole lame login-as-superuser-create-a-manager-and-relogin
process will be gone in 2.3. At install time you'll create a first
manager and just use that. A "superuser" will not even exist, unless
and until you need it and explicitly create it.

He can un-screw permissions or users if you ever manage to
get totally locked out of your site. Think of it as a user mounted
in a box on the wall labeled "in case of emergency, break glass".
In practice, few should ever have to break the glass.
