Non-privileged mode #13

How difficult would it be to add a non-privileged mode that doesn't require to be run as root?

I would love to build this using our continuous integration system which obviously runs as a normal user. Another reason is that I don't feel comfortable running scripts as root that interact with websites.

I see two possible methods: simply omit the commands that require root privileges or hardcode the sudo into them. With the latter method, I could then give sudo access to these specific commands to my continuous integration user via /etc/sudoers.

Perhaps fakeroot could fix the issue?

Just to be clear, this issue was closed as "won't fix". My pull request, which adds the capability to run this script as a normal user with certain sudo privileges, was rejected without further explanation.
