BTW, I wouldn't argue that Python shouldn't provide things
that are only useful to root. While writing setuid utilities
in Python is a bad idea for lots of reasons, I don't think
there's anything wrong with becoming root by another means
and then running a Python program that you know well enough
to trust.
