Why better¿?. Why don't you create one special user with his role for
it instead of admin?. Grant CAP_DAC_READ_SEARCH as min_cap to the user
to read all and create one script with one separate type with
CAP_DAC_OVERRIDE granted in their own type with a forced role marked
with their necessary rights  and and make it only accessible by this
trusted user. You have alternatives to do this. Assure you use too the
CAP_LD_PRELOAD hack with minimun capabilities.
