UserRC is a small program to run from rcNG to start or stop user processes at bootup and shutdown.

A feew checks are made on the scripts before they are executed:

1) Is the script owned by right person?
2) Are the file permissions restrictive enough?

A user's RC files are placed in $HOME/rc.d and UserRC, after forking for the user, sets its UID to be that of the owner of the rc script.

A few security checks are performed, and the user's rcNG scripts are run as the UID of the owner.
