I've never looked at this code, but I think this probably because it would be
difficult to implement code for this to work as a non-root user. As I'm sure it has
many kernel hooks.
You could set up sudo for this command, if you just really don't want to run as
root. Which is good practice, but most people don't even consider it. You may be
able to setuid the commands as well.
