Re: Your opinion about adding Gnome Xsu to GNOME-Utils

Thinking about the PAM thing more, I think we could easily deal with a
"su" app in our PAM setup - say we have gnome-su, so that .desktop
files contain:

 gnome-su app-that-requires-root

Then we could replace gnome-su with a no-op application that simply
runs app-that-requires-root, and then the PAM auth kicks in.
So if GNOME has an su app upstream it shouldn't break operating
systems that have a nicer setup. Unless I'm missing something.
