anything that encourages people to start an xsession as root is bad -
and its one of the (ideological) reasons why i don't like redhat

(if these were tagged with some sort of "gain root" command, eg:
sudo/su/super, that would be ok - probably through a "debianconfig"
menu option - or better yet, have a single program (not menu (or X)
related) that is a wrapper to all of them)
