I have done that for the metadata plugin now, which actually does use per-user 
dicts if private metadata is enabled.  However, the only reason my ACL plugin 
changes use getenv("USER") is that dict_init requires a username.  That 
username is not actually needed for what the code does with the dict, though.  
All entries are public entries and it doesn't matter which user reads or 
modifies the dict.  Maybe the dict API should have the concept of a purely 
public dict which doesn't require a username.

I did that now.

I put that in because it was useful for me while developing.  I'm not sure 
it's useful for admins later on.  So maybe I should remove them.
