Don't operate forcing root-login
It is very common that root login has been disabled due to security reasons. The current version forces the necessity of a root login ignoring the previous settings. Therefor it would be great to use sudo() instead of settings(user='root'). This makes the deployment more flexible.
Currently, I don't see a way how to deploy my application with parcel without opening the gates to my servers via root login. Did I miss something?
