Can you ifdef this with a configure option?  It could be useful for, say, 
developers who are writing a playobject, to have the option to have some 
things owned as his own user.

Well, yes, please do.  It's a pretty important event, especially if you 
don't retake realtime afterward.  And artsmessage would be the thing to 
use, same as with any other arts message.

I'm reminded of when the artsd restart code was restarting artsd without 
realtime.. very annoying.
