undo checkout permission for non-admins?

you know the story...a user checks out files and then goes on vacation...the other users need access to the file \ need to make changes, etc.


It appears that users and groups cannot be given permission to perform "undo checkouts" like the admin user can?


We would like to give a certain group of users the superpower to perform an undo checkout on their own, without having to get in touch with the admin, wait for a response, etc.


If there is no "easy way" to configure this, I was thinking about creating a custom epdm task that has epdm API code in it...the code would perform the undo checkout...the task can be configured to "run as admin" and I can also limit access to the task to only those in the "epdmUndoCheckoutUsers" group...


thanks in advance for any thoughts on how to address this situation
