I was thinking ausearch/auparse would treat all the TRUSTED_APPs the
same...since they (currently) fails to parse these correctly anyway
IMHO. :)

Everything else could treat the additional user types exactly as they do
the TRUSTED_APP event now. When I dig through the events on the back end
I would be able to act differently on the ones I know I've put in place
on the originating end.

I will be starting work on some stuff which could utilize this after the
holidays. If it gets into RHEL6 I would be thrilled!
