I don't/won't use usermin so I can't comment on that but Jamie is so
quick with updates that webmin is hardly a security issue if you
regularly yum update and install webmin from dag/rpmforge

Webmin was invaluable to me as a learning tool (before I figured out
where the config files were buried) and I use it as a leave behind
mainly for my customers to use the LDAP Users/Groups to add/delete users
and if necessary, the shut down the beast since there is rarely a
keyboard/mouse/monitor on the servers.

I still use webmin for DHCP and BIND server configuration because it
makes it really simple.
