No, I don't think so. Maybe I wasn't clear.
It is bad advice for someone asking help about fakeroot to tell them
to also use sudo or super. Pick one and one only.

If you even think that Linux itself will even *let* you do this, you
need to do a little RTM'ing.
fakeroot simple *pretends* it is creating files with an ownership of
