jhalfs: why su - (user)

   ..Dan's work made me think of this..
   If we can pick and our user/group and all looks well is there a 
reason we should keep ... su - $(LUSER)... at all. You will still need 
root priv or sudo to build the final stages so privileges are not an 
issue. As usual it is easier to state than code and gremlins pop up in 
the least likely places.

   I know this drifts even further from book and if mirroring the book 
is one objective of jhalfs then the status quo is fine.
