OK. swat needs to be run such that it can access user passwords, and then
change user ID to match that of the user specified. Under Unix, this would
be root; probably VOS treats root the same way?
Can you dig out more info on how to extract the encrypted passwords, and
how to become a user after login? Presumably you have already had to
address this for the file serving aspect??
