Yes, just tested.

No, the ircd won't run as root but - same as with apache and other
daemons - only root should be able to _change_ the configuration. Thx to
the unix file permissions this is no problem.

Yes, the locking mechanism is nice. The next version of the package will
have the viconf + symlinks.

As for the oftc-blitzed services the package will take some more time
since the configure and install script don't work as expected regarding
prefix and *dir options.
