Description

I suggest to add for transmission-daemon the following options (this feature is implemented in apache and many other programs):

--user (e.g. –-user=nobody)
--group (e.g. –-group=nobody)

for security reason. It is difficult on some embedded systems to start transmission-daemon using external scripts and as a result daemon starts under root which is not a good idea at all…

Thanks, Sergey
