some variables (like ROOT_USER or ROOT_GROUP) also have variants of the
form REAL_*. Before we add new variables of that kind, we should
_document_ why they are needed.
Currently, unprivileged.mk sets REAL_ROOT_USER to ROOT_USER in some
cases. I cannot see a value in having the REAL_* variables when they are
not really "REAL".
