Correct. A-T changes the files ownership only under t/ where all the 
activity should happen and not outside of it, since it's impossible to 
know what other dirs may need to be chdired and whether it's a safe 
thing to do at all (since we are running as root)

Other than that A-T works just fine when run as root as long as the 
directory where t/ resides is accessible (rx) by the user Apache is 
running under.
