[Python-Dev] Running the unit test as root/administrator

Greetings, comrades!

Having handled these two issues personally:

- test related with symlink fails on Windows Vista with administrator
account (in Windows NT 6, only account in administrator group can
create symlink)
- bug in spwd module, which can be used only by root

I believe there is a virtue of running the unit test as
root/administrator to catch these errors automatically. Currently
there is no unit test for spwd module.

What do you say, comrades?
