[mythtv] unprivileged user?

call me a security nut, but wouldn't it be a good idea for myth to
chuser on startup to something of its own?  Would prevent some nasty
system problems for those of us who've been running myth as root via
sysV startup scripts - that way, myth couldn't write to the reserved
file system blocks and overload the machine.

Anyway, I'm going to at least go modify my sysV script for now.  But
it'd be cool if myth did this on its own.
