I am asking buildbot of Linux/Unix/BSD with root account. Do we have it now?

Of course, I can write unit test for spwd module right now and mark it
only to be run with root account and skipped with regular user
account. But I would argue that it would be hard to find people
running test suite with root account. That's why buildbot is helping
much in this case.
