    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.....



    Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
