I think the failcolor should notify the user about malicious intentions from
other people. Pressing a key (maybe even by accident) is not malicious in my
opinion. Also sometimes I begin typing my password (out of a habit) before the
screen wakes up and it would be nice to still be able to check if someone else
tried to login before.

What were your thoughts, sin and dsp?
