    Originally, to preserve the password.  Of course, the whole
    WebCT nonsense shot a big fat hole in that.  A secondary
    benefit is that it preserves the other meta data (dates
    and such) and that it is less likely to end up half-done.

    Plus, maybe someday somebody will pay WebCT to fix their mess...
