EditSURating - edit the rating for a structural unit for the current

    The EditSURating CGI script permits a Good/Bad rating indication to be
    created between a user and a structural unit.

    *username* - Name of user running this CGI script. Required unless web
    server authentication is in use (when it is, the web server
    authenticated user is used instead).
    *password* - Password for the user. This is only required if the web
    server is not handling the user authentication and if no security hash
    parameter is being given.
    *security_hash* - An opaque value used to authenticate the user without
    requiring the password to be sent. This value is generated by a previous
    execution of a LUMP API script and may well be time limited. It is only
    required if no password or webserver authentication is done.
    *act_as* - Users in the SysAdmins group can elect to act on the behalf
    of other users once they are themselves authenticated. If this parameter
    is present it should contain the username of the user that should be
    switched to if this option is available and the real user has been
    authenticated successfully. Optional.
    *session_id* - An opaque string as far as the server is concerned that
    is intended solely to allow async clients to differentiate different
    results more easily. Optional.
    *json* - requests that results be returned in JSON format rather than
    *callback* - Supplies a JSONP callback. Optional and if given the
    results are returned in JSONP format rather than XML.

  Specific for this script
    *suid* - ID for the Structural Unit. Required.
    *rating* - This needs to be set to either "good" or "bad" to indicate
    the rating the user wished to attach to this structural unit. Required.

    For successful operations, the LUMP XML <returns> section has a <rating>
    element set with that returns the current rating summary for the given
    structural unit. By specifying the *json* or *callback* parameters in
    the request, the response can be returned in JSON or JSONP format rather
    than XML if required.
