Apart from obvious problems with giving users enough rights to do common
tasks, which isn't something I'm terribly worried about in my situation
(I'm pretty much the only one who should be doing anything mildly
advanced anyway), could you point out something that goes wrong? I'd
assume that if an application has its own virtual view of the filesystem
and registry (that it could read and potentially modify) that most
applications would work reasonably well.
