This mostly works although I'd actually want an option to drop it into
this mode in case say some cracker gets into the cell and then removes
existing s:a members while adding himself.  

Where should I look if I want to try and implement this?  Also, I
assume I'd need to remove the logic that prevents database rebuilding
if noauth is not true; will there be any harmful effects from this?
