Allow starting kwin_wayland as root

Fabian Vogt requested to merge work/norootblock into master

Running a Plasma Wayland session as root is not insecure, it is in fact the opposite. There is no way for other users to somehow influence this session due to the user separation and the user is more likely to only use this for administrative actions. This is in contrast to regular user sessions, which most likely start a mix of unprivileged programs next to privileged windows like some with authorized kauth helpers or even just sudo in a konsole tab.
