  Description     : module to make it simple to drop all privileges

Privileges::Drop tries to simplify the process of dropping privileges. This
can be useful when your Perl program needs to bind to privileged ports, etc.
This module is much like Proc::UID, except that it's implemented in pure
Perl. Special care has been taken to also drop saved uid on platforms that
support this, currently only test on Linux.
