------- Additional Comments from Gerald Combs <[email protected]>
As Joerg suggested, simply nudge the user and point them to better security
instead of picking them up with a forklift and moving them there by force.  

Remove the non-privileged user code, along with Nikns' AUTHORS entry, since
that was the last of the code from his patch.  In TShark, warn the user if they
have elevavated privileges.  Do the same in Wireshark, and provide an option to
disable the warning.  Add doxygen tags for privileges.h.
