This has never been possible as far as I know. Some components sometime
allow to do "stuff on behalf of" other users, such as with the REF
Such a feature would require low-level patching of
EPrints::Repository->current_user (shouldn't be too hard to achieve
though eg store a on_behalf_of cookie, have a validate method and a pin
on the template to un-masquerade). This would be a sweet feature!
