can I overcome the privileges issue?
If it's just collecting stats of usage, then why don't you use a
public-readable file in each user's private-writable Library dir.
Or store private-writable public-readable per-user plists in a public-
writable dir like /Users/Shared. Or if /Users/Shared is
unacceptable, then use another dir created for your app, or explain
why /Users/Shared is unacceptable.
If you can avoid having to use AEWP and elevated privileges, it will
greatly simplify things and enhance security.
Just because you *can* do something with AEWP doesn't mean you *should*.
