I know this isn't the right place for comments on the actual work,
but where is?
These should arguably both be changed to something like
"Permission denied" if they can be safely changed as neither
"not super-user" nor "not owner" are necessarily going to be correct.

Finally, is it expected that someone requesting a sponsor have a patch
that they consider final to be done, or is a WIP allowed?
