motd.txt / motd-users.txt should be dropped IMHO. The only thing I always do with them is removing all content ;-)

If someone really needs to have something like the motd*.txt, he can still edit the template and insert it there.

If someone really wants the motd functionality without template editing, it could be made a $CONF['motd'] setting (default: empty). Depends on the feedback I get here ;-) - please speak up if you want $CONF settings for the motd.

    What if you just ship empty motd*.txt files instead? I can see how it could be useful, but I emptied mine out too.

    After some thinking and discussion on IRC, I decided to replace the motd*.txt files with $CONF[motd_*] settings. You can define a separate motd for superadmins, admins and users.

    Commited to SVN trunk r1142.
