Can a Server-side plugin run in a different context?

I have an SSP, and it runs in the context of the person who "hit the Save button" ... as it should :-)
Is there any way to change the context that it runs in?  We have a few cases where we want to Plugin to do things that we don't want a normal user to be able to do.

the only thing you could do is write an event handler, which runs under the server context, not as a user.
I don't know what permissions it would have.

I don't think this is possible. At least not easily. You could try to trigger some asynchronous task that runs in a different context as described here:
