FrontPage 1.1 wants root so it can restart httpd whenever it makes
changes to srm.conf on behalf of the FP user.

FrontPage 1.2 extensions no longer requires this providing you
hack up mod_alias.c to their specifications.

See my posting "FrontPage mod_alias fiddling" for some details about
how I worked-around all this.
