Who uses UseLogin?

Does anyone set sshd's UseLogin=yes? If so, why?

I'd like to remove this option - I've not needed it in the last 15 years
on any platform (making it a very poorly-tested code path) and it breaks
a few things including post-authentication privilege separation.

Can anyone speak in its defence?
