| Well, it looks like they hit the same snag - how do you know which
| of a multitude of run as root apps are available for that user?

| .desktop file which falls outside the FDS remit, I think.
the .desktop files are read by DE's for menu-making. the DE has
usually a standard "su" tool. that's why i was thinking in the
beginning, that this would be the ideal thing to handle needs-root
but if gooeydo works, great for us! :)
