Hmm.... I'm not entirely sure about this, since it doesn't give the
flexibility that the sudo parsing idea does, but it does simplify things
a great deal. The .desktop file could contain a "needs admin" setting of
some sort, and we could set the USER_IS_ADMIN setting based on
membership of the admin group...
