This will be nice. We can do this along with the change to make Plinth
use system users instead of its own database. Django auth module and its
backends might be useful. With the pending merge requests we are close
using Django auth module fully.

I think there is not much to do here. The commands in actions directory
have sudo permissions. So, we can simply add proper arguments to
start-stop-daemon and check that everything still works as expected.
