Thanks, Andrew - I think I'll implement the current version of Masquerade
for the moment (great module, btw - I use it on all of my dev sites) and
then work on integrating this functionality in a patch when I've got more
time - will allow me to learn more about Drupal security, too. Masquerade is
a "brand" module in my view so there's really no need to fork it.
