regarding that lots of users don't get the sudo concept 
of ubuntu i'd like to make some suggestions:

1. a wrapper for sudo that monitors if passwd is called 
and points out that you gain nothing above the sudo
concept with setting up a root password.
probably show a link to the appropriate docs.

2. drop the mentioning of root completely form the gksudo
windows. replace it with something like (i'm german, so excuse my
"Please enter your Password to confirm you want to do administrative
or  " want to run xyz"
