Unfortunatly there is no real alternative, other then running it as root.
I like to run things as little as root as possible. On the other hand, you
are the first, and so far only, person who complained about this.

With several thousand downloads, I would expect some people complaining.
So it seems almost nobody changes the default.

Due to the fact that you might need to enter you rootpassword twice, I
might be willing to let it be run as root.
