I recommend you use 'sudo' for those commands since that makes the
situation clearer. Also we typically recommend use of sudo across the
entire Magazine. We have a sudo article you can link to as well, for
anyone who hasn't set it up. (Just link it on first use with some text
like "use sudo to run this command.")
I considered sudo, but when *everything* needs to be run as root, then it seems
like a bit of a waste of space (not to mention a recipe for carpal tunnel).

I get the humor for sure, but since this is somewhat USA-centric and
also we have a fairly well defined style language for images, I would
prefer we stick with something more standard.
OK; just wondered what the rules were. Thanks.
