I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but we are close to deciding
what to do when our preflight script finds wrong permissions or

1. Should we just aspire to the same degree of permissions/owner
repair that Disk Utility does, i.e., not care about the owner on
"/"? BTW, DU does not fix a bad owner or permissions of /Library/
PrivilegedHelperTools/. I know some of you have said that DU
should fix the owner of "/".
Disk Utility is not always the most clever guy in the room: e.g.
IMHO, the reference is what the boms of the OS install disks say
(plus the security fixes introduced by minor OS updates and security
updates). So if the boms say '/' should be root/admin, just consider
it should be root/admin.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
