Yup, unless that regular user is the same one used for userpriv (if
I'm correctly understanding the problem that you're pointing at).  I
don't see this as a show-stopper - just a reason to have a news item.
Those not using userpriv can always disable it and run as root as they
are already doing.  Those who are using a regular user to sync could
ensure that their make.conf uses the same user for userpriv.
