su defaults to root, not user id 0

Hey there,

This is a somewhat frivolous bug, but my friends and I are wondering why
su defaults to user 'root' instead of to Unix user id 0. That is, if I
change the user name of the Unix account with id 0, su no longer
defaults correctly to that user name.

Any thoughts on the rationale behind this implementation decision?
