in jerry's comment;
 'Giving root ownership to a script IMHO is a security issue.'
led me to believe that ability to do so by normal user was still unchanged.

having read 'chown(2)' and trying it to see just what occurred, now shows
me that it has been changed.

i had hopes that it would be corrected, i have never checked or tried to
do so. as i have never had reason to do, because if i ever need to do
something of 'root' level, i have always changed to 'root'.
