 Description   

With reference to https://tickets.xsede.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=86353

xdusage currently requires one to configure sudo to allow the script to run through sudo as the xdusage user.  Instead, we could have a setuid binary that does nothing except exec() the hardcoded path to the xdusage script.
