The only convincing use case I've ever come up with is resizing
the /home partition using a graphical partition tool; you can't do that
with su from a user account because the partition will obviously be
busy. =) but it's sufficiently niche that 'just run startx from runlevel
3' is really enough to cover it. or, y'know, 'use a live CD'.
