Since there are many similar function programs, use of generic name is
preferred to using specific one such as "gksu".

   /user/bin/xsu-command /usr/bin/gkdebconf

xsu-command can be linked to xsu, gksu, ... (of course command line
syntax needs to be same.)

Many system configuration and CD-burner wrapper program can be a good

Just my 2 cents.
