I'll code up a global "Anonymous" and "SYSTEM" token

Actually in this case, accessing the eventlog record
tdbs should be handled by file systenm permissions.
An alternative for readonly access to certain
registry values would be a simple command line tool
that could be executed from a shell.  How would that
work for you?
