But rtmpsuck does not seem to set that stuff itself, thus you can run it as 
non-root user after you've set up the necessary redirects yourself.

For example, all X software is not in /usr/sbin even if you traditionally have 
to be root to setup and run X server.

I don't intend to argue further, though, so feel free to leave it as you wish.
