Summary0001663: Prevent Anope from running as root.
DescriptionIf I'm reading the source code correctly, Anope will start as root, throw the warning, sleep for three seconds, and start.

https://github.com/anope/anope/blob/907e192aab72872d15186f87ae7acfe0f1b71901/src/init.cpp#L429-L432 [^]

We all know running stuff as root can be a bit of a bad idea. Some people will just ignore the warning as they might not know any better.

I'm thinking, make Anope throw the warning, give some suggestions/directions on how to download/configure/make/install Anope as a non-root person, then just abort/exit.
