      Description

      Apache Sling recently added the ability to define dedicated service users that allows to replace the troublesome SlingRepository.loginAdministrative with SlingRepository.loginService.

      In a default Sling repository backed by a Jackrabbit/Oak content repository this results in user accounts being created for these service users.

      Since these service users are never expected to represent a real subject that has a userId/password pair or profile information editable by this very subject, I figured out that it may be useful to cover these service users with the following API extensions, which would allow us to identify if a given user account is in fact a service (or system) user.
