I love the idea.  I have too many privileges on my normal user because I
find it tedious to switch to another user to do admin stuff quick. I've
tried both the Devl and Masquerade options and didn't care for them. I'd
love to have my normal user where I could click something and all the admin
options show up and click something else and they all go away without
actually changing users.
