I don't understand why this requires the user to be root, unless they
are to do something that only root should be allowed (like read and
write raw disks).

!! Can't this be started from inetd ?  Certainly no suid program
should be used - instead if inetd is not good enough, use something
like inndstart (it's not suid root but instead is run by root,
switches to the right user and executes the daemon).

We've had this one.
