Does anyone know if there is a way to give a non-privileged user the right 
to change ownership of files for a particular directory only?  Let say that 
I allocated the directory "/backup" for this purpose.  I want the "operator" 
the rights to restore files on this directory and then change the ownership 
of the restored files to the appropriate end user.   I hope that there is a 
syntax for this in sudoers.
