I have done that before, and it works when I need to
do system level things.  But in some cases there may
be another user who I want to keep on, or I may want
to log on to other tubes while the system is in a pseudo
restricted state.

Normally, this is only done for data wide level things.

There is a procedure that we run that purges our database
of old records and moves them to history.  While this is
run no one can be using the files (for obvious reasons)
and normally this is done after hours.  Sometimes it is done
during hours (during lunch hour if we can) and at that
point it is easiest to just kick everyone off the system and
keep them out 'til the job finishes.  But, there are a few other
people in MIS who may be doing something that need to
stay on during this period.  Or I may need to do things during
this period.

By kicking everyone off and just locking the initial program,
anyone "in the know" can still log into the system.   I am sure
I could do it programmatically (have the initial program check a
data area for a flag or something) but this is just easier.
