% wrong. Read my earlier reply.

Do you mean the one where you said to compile an SUID binary to call bob's
script? The binary that, while easy to make, requires root to install?

No. It requires bob to install. I do not expect someone's run
something on bob's behalf without bob being aware of it. If the goal
is run command as bob without letting bob know, then one must be root
indeed.
