Using Process module

I am writing an app that in some parts need root access, but 90% of
the time does not.

It seems the relevant methods in Process to switch UID and GID does
not exist in JRuby.

Is there a way to start as root, drop privilege and regain it when
needed without bothering the user, or needed to store the root password?
