Please submit patches via our ITS system.  Please follow our
contribution guidelines, ie: provide a suitable copyright notice
for your patch file.  As is, it's "All Rights Reserved" which
isn't very usable.

As far as uid/gid support goes, I'd like to see it modeled after
named (under FreeBSD at least) -u/-g options.  These allow specification
of the uid/gid by name or id.  If gid is not specificied, then getgroups()
is used (which opens access to to all groups that this uid is in).
