[THIN] Re: What happens if you leave server in "Install Mode"

Well indeed, but it will only be whatever is done within that session,
as opposed to all the other sessions on the server at the same time.

I'm not suggesting it's a valid idea, what I am suggesting is that doing
so, forgetting to do a change user /execute, then logging off, will have
the same affect, because the mode is only active for the session in
question.
