Not off the top of my head.  It might be better to just explain what
it's doing, basically fooling the application into seeing the current
user as being uid/gid == 0 if the user has admin rights.

But, this reminds me.

Some users are running fetchmail/procmail/mutt without the detour over
using an MTA, for instance:

  $ grep mda ~/.fetchmailrc
  mda "/usr/bin/procmail -d %T"

Will this still work as expected, even if the user is member of the
admin group?  Keep in mind that Windows XP/2003 are not providing UAC
at all, and even on UAC-providing systems, it might be switched off.
