 Specifically, the following custom actions are marked to run on behalf of the user (i.e.,
non-elevated), rather than on behalf of the machine (i.e., elevated):

FYI, I followed all of these changes, but decided to retain StartApacheMonitor,
the user can't be allowed to have that impersonating the localsystem in their
userspace, it's a security consideration because from there, they may launch
the full SCM, connect to remote machines, etc.

Suffice it to say, if they install as-user, and want to administer rather than
just view the world through ApacheMonitor, they will need to grant appropriate
