Run as Super User

Since root is disabled by default, It would be nice if when I right
clicked on a program launcher one of the options was to run that
program as sudo.  Kind of like Windows XP "run as" menu option.  This
could be very useful sometimes for doing file management in Nautalis
or editing a file in gEdit.  For this to be most useful it should work
when right clicking on a menu item and on a desktop item.

There is probably not enough time for Warty but maybe for Hoary.

Just a thought.
