Re: cygrunsrv

Hi Brian...

Installing the service as a specific user works, and I have used it that way for a long time. However, to do that I add rights to the users to log on as a service. Given that there has been questions from time to time about what rights and how to set them, I wondered if giving cygrunsrv the ability to change users would reduce this. I can live with things as they are, I thought it would be a usefull addition.

It would be a significant learning curve for me, so I wanted to see if there was interest and/or someone who was willing to implement it before embarking.

Why should cygrunsrv switch users?  Why not just install the service to
run as the desired user?  cygrunsrv already supports this with --user.
