Actually, if the "regular user" needs more than "guest" privs to do their
*normal* stuff, the system's security model is severely screwed. In fact,
the *very first* thing that happened when computers got the ability to support
multiple userids was to separate "user" and "sysadmin" - this was already a
well-understood idea when Multics showed up in 1967 or so. Ever since then,
there's only been one vendor of multi-user operating systems that thought that
running with "more than usual" privs is a sane way to do things.....
