[rabbitmq-discuss] How to run RabbitMQ server as a different system user?

I have Rabbit 2.8.4 running on RHEL5.  The installation instructions (http://www.rabbitmq.com/install-rpm.html) say:

Note: The server is set up to run as system user rabbitmq. If you change the location of the Mnesia database or the logs, you must ensure the files are owned by this user (and also update the environment variables).

Is it possible to run as a user other than "rabbitmq"?  I am not interested in changing Mnesia at all, unless it is required to change the user.  Is re-installation required or can my existing install be salvaged?
