Why not both?  When creating a user, have a checkbox to 'deliver root's
email to this user', then also have a input dialog that says 'forward
this user's email to "______" address'.  This way multiple users can be
listed in the root alias, and each user can have their local mail
delivered elsewhere if desired.

Just my $0.02
