Alter/Admin SDE Layers without being logged in as the owner

Idea created by heyserj on Apr 1, 2010
    Currently to administer an SDE layer the user needs to be logged in as the owner of the layer.  Please allow that privilege to be granted to other users.  This would allow us to grant business users the ability to do a few more things they need to do without giving away the ability to create new objects.
