Bug#512717: project: Should have alternatives for graphical su and sudo (x-su, x-sudo?)
It'd be nice if packages which depend on gksu, gksudo, ksudo, etc could use a unified alternative (e.g. x-su for su-like and x-sudo for sudo-like graphical frontents to su and sudo) so that one was not required to install e.g. parts of gnome just because a package depends on gksu (there are a few packages for which gksu pulls in more of gnome than if one leaves out gksu and uses ktsuss or ksudo (for instance)).
I'm not sure the appropriate place for this bug, so I put it on project for someone more knowledgable to reassign.
