That was just an example, interesting are of course even checkuser
accounts and such. I don't see any reason why system which notify you
that someone is trying to login as you is something bad for stewards.

Let me clarify:
we are talking about accounts which are interesting for hackers such
as these of stewards.
Really? You're clearly designing a system targeting inactive sysops
who disappear, but it doesnt seem suitable for inactive stewards who
The former happens and nobody notices or cares, whereas the latter
rarely happens without anyone noticing/caring, and never happens for
more than a year because of steward re-elections.
Unless the software is going to poll stewards who have been inactive
for a month or two, it wont be more effective than the current system,
and the current system of steward re-elections isnt replaceable with
your design (or any other software solution).
