My first feature request for OpenSuse 11.3 is to add the WHIRLPOOL encryption
as a choice for the login password. More info can be found here:

Also the encryption options should have security ratings displayed like this:

Whirlpool (Strongest)
MD5 (Okay)

My second feature request is to have a PC tracking feature so users can find
their PC if it gets stolen. The iPhone has a feature like this so OpenSuse
should too. It could work by users going into Control Center and clicking on
"Computer Tracking" and then they type in their email address and choose when
they want the ip address of the internet connection sent to them, like this:

Find your lost or stolen computer:
Your Email Address: example@xxxxxxxxxxx
Send Location : Never
Once per Hour
Once per Day

If the computer has a GPS or wifi connected then those co-ordinates could be
sent too. It should support IPv4 and IPv6 ip addresses.

Reproducible: Always
