It would be good if we had a standard way of doing that... I talked to
walters about this some weeks ago, and he suggested it would be a good
thing to merge xsu, gnome-sudo and gksu (maybe others?).
I'm willing to work towards this, and I think it would be good to
create some policy for that, probably modify the su-to-root script
to use a "graphical su" alternative if $DISPLAY is set...
It would even be good to have a capplet (and the equivalento on kcontrol)
with options like:
Which way to become root?:
(*) Giving the root password (su)
( ) Using powers given by the admin (sudo)
What application will ask for the password?
(*) gnome-su (say this is the result of gnome-sudo + gksu + xsu)
( ) kdesu
( ) terminal with su
( ) custom
Command: (in case custom is selected)
The options should be changed in case the first question is changed,
