I looked at that. I need something slightly different. For installing my
app, I was writing a panel that would see if the user was root on Linux or
Administrator on Windows. The the user was one of these, the panel would
never show. Otherwise it would show up with a message like, "This program
must be installed as root. Please exit and run again as root." (or
s/root/Administrator/g if you're on Windows)
As long as I needed it, I thought I'd see if it would be easy to make it work
on a Mac as well and make it for everyone.
