That's basically the term we already use, but the problem with root
is that it might not mean a person, but also a user on a Unix OS, who
has certain privileges and such. The Sysop is much more like the
operating system, or as I put it, the intelligence behind a
programmed reality that steps in when some kind of intelligence is
needed (decision making, packet sniffing, etc.).
