 | 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? 
 | Even if there was a field in the .desktop file where you could add
 | a run as root app you can't guarantee that every user/system will
 | have it. That mean another layer of functionality outside the
 | .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! :)
