A very useful module in D6 days called Admin Role. It attempts to convert the concept of the superuser (uid = 1) to a role; thereby allowing multiple users to be the superuser. Obviously a concept that should be in Drupal core.
I seem to vaguely recall the days of D5 when altering fields seemed much simpler.. hmmm. Anyway, needed to alter a simple label of a field today and took far longer than it should have; so thought I would post here.
