Note that this only applies to the Zope 3 system user, which someday
will be used for Zope 2 I expect.

I have some automated tasks that invoke code that expects a
principle to exist in the interaction, so I'd like to use the
"system user" (principle ID zope.security.management.system_user,
defined in zope.security) to perform them, but its current title of
"Special System User that typically has all permissions" isn't
exactly something I want to show end-users.
I'd like to change it to something like "System User". I /think/
this change shouldn't affect people much because until recently this
principle couldn't be looked up by it's ID (a recent fix to
zope.app.security made it possible).
I'd prefer something even shorter, like "System". I think if someone
sees this in a log, "System" will be less puzzling than "System
User". An end user is likely to wonder "who" the system user is.
Perhaps a short explanation can be added to the description.
If this proposal meets with support (or is totally ignored <wink>),
I'll make a bug fix release of zope.security with this change.
