And with the default /etc/ssh/sshd_config, if you are _not_ at
the console, root logins are _not_ allowed. Period*.
However, if you had another account from which to
log in to the system, it should not have been deleted,
AFAIK, unless you made a mistake while using mergemaster.
*Unless you have specifically enabled them, which is
absolutely _not_ considered a Good Thing(tm).
