To be (root), Or not to be

The original version of this config set the user to root. It's not really clear why, MythTV should never be run as root, so the running user would need to be a member of the mythtv group instead. However I do recognise that many logs are owned by root even when the process is running under another username, so maybe there is a benefit I'm missing?
