Bug#259418: distributed-net: would like to run as seperate user, 'dnetc' instead of 'daemon'

What would be the advantage of this over the current system?  The daemon user
already has full permissions for that directory:
    drwxr-xr-x    2 daemon   daemon       4096 Jul 12 00:07

I'd be interested to hear your rationale for this.
