 Thanks, Can. I'm not good enough with C to review the change so I'll leave
 that to Jake. I'm happy to include it as an alternative to the python
 version if he feels it would be helpful.

 I've done additional testing, made some fixes, and merged with master:

 I'm not spotting a method for overwriting the saved user id prior to
 python 2.7 so this leaves that unset, using setreuid/gid rather than
 setresuid/gid, if running 2.6 or earlier. Patches welcome if this is an
 important issue and someone knows of an alternative.

 At this point the arm components of this change are done so assigning this
 to torouter for review by Jake, integration testing, and to determine if
 there's anything more he needs from the change.
