IIRC, you need "some" rights for BASE to function.  I tried adding a
read-only user, but you have to write the cache entries and post-indexed
items which BASE normally does on each page update (e.g., Added 'xx'
alerts to the alert cache).

You can even try doing reduced SQL GRANTs to a second user, but I never
quite got the right combination without hosing some functionality.

If anyone succeeds, there is certainly an audience of at least two now
for that ability.  :-)
