Feature Request - Ability to open folders as root on Mac

It would be great if one had the ability to open folders as root when using the File Manager on Mac so when a user is in use, the user directory can still be accessed. This is in situations where there is a remote user used instead of the main user and the main user's screen isn't locked. It would be extremely cool if there was a shadow root mode, where it would allow you to view directories with users in use, but any change wouldn't make the resulting action root, but changes permissions to what it was before.
