I do feel this need... su-to-root could be hacked to use such config
option, or we should create alternatives, such as x-su and x-sudo
to be handled by update-alternatives (someone needs to write a graphical
tool for this one, also =P)

I don't think we should limit the choice to sudo only, so an option
to select which one of those two methods is used is in order... some
people just don't like to use sudo.

Agree completly.
