Bug#728304: for schroot backend allow to run tests as user while installation steps as root

Package: autopkgtest
Version: 2.3.8
Severity: wishlist

Adding user's login to root-users configuration of schroot allows  autopkgtest
to invoke apt-get with necessary privileges, but then tests also run
under root user, instead of the original user, which is undesirable for a few

it would be nice if schroot first initiated the session, used root for apt-get
calls, and then actual tests call under a normal original user.  Even better
(although probably worth a separate wishlist bug?) would be if it allowed
execution under another (specified, or temporarily created within the chroot)
user thus to eliminate effects of local (existing) user  configuration.
