Using hierarchical privilege

By default, privileges are non-hierarchical (i.e. users with privilege 3 only have access to commands with classification 3).

When privileges are changed to hierarchical (using ini parameter [Privilege]Exclusive), privilege 1 becomes the lowest and 8 is the highest privilege. This means users with privilege 3 have access to commands with privilege classification 3, 2, and 1, whilst to allocate every privilege, you only need to specify privilege 8.
