FWIW, we had the need for such use case in Thermostat and we had to
work around this requirement, Elliot even sent a patch some time ago.
With that said, I do think that it's reasonable that root can't access
to the JVM, nothing should run as root and if you need that, something
smells troubles. I'm not sure, especially in a containerised world,
that this requirement makes sense at all, so I wouldn't relax it.
