[Slackbuilds-users] Moving sbopkg to /usr/sbin and require root

Sorry for the cross-post to sbopkg and slackbuilds.org mailing lists but
I want to get as much feedback as possible.
Currently, sbopkg can be run by root or a non-root user. Certain
functions or features can only be done by a root user, of course, like
building and installing packages. However, trying to maintain this dual
permission standard is becoming very problematic. More than once I have
considered removing the 'user-mode' from sbopkg, move sbopkg to
/usr/sbin, and require sbopkg be run only by the root user, like
pkgtool, slackpkg, and other similar tools require. Several unrelated
issues have brought this to the forefront again and I am now very much
leaning towards making this change.
So, the question is: how many people feel strongly about keeping the
ability to run sbopkg as a non-root user? Could folks adapt to using
sbopkg only as root?
Feel free to respond on the list or privately.
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
