I'd like to write some web based utilities for users to change things like
mail forwarding and vacation autoreplies, as well as password changing.

In order to do these things, I need to have a way for the PHP script to
assume the privileges of the authenticated user.  (If they don't supply
the correct username/password, they won't be allowed to use the tools.)

Is there any way PHP can do this?  I can't just setuid to a static user,
since there are many users who would be using this tool.

I'm sure there's got to be a way, even if it involves other packages as
well.  Any ideas?
