You cannot, at the moment, unless you use a C wrapper script. Searching the
newsgroup/maillist (using www.python.org/search, for example) for 'setuid
perl' should give you a couple of explanations why setuid scripts are
unsafe, and maybe a couple of example wrapper scripts. If you can't find
examples and can't figure one out yourself, I can send you one (the C
wrapper we use for our setuid perl scripts, instead of suidperl.)
