Yeees, but app-installer tool was primarily meant to be invoked by the
osso-application-installer via sudo.  It was kind of unanticipated
that people are using it from the command line so much.  I actually
only created app-installer-tool so that I could use sudo to do the
user switching (not trusting myself to get it right when
app-installer-tool is setuid and does the user switching itself).
