I agree with that portion. I find myself sitting at kcontrol modules that 
won't load right all the time because of the sudo hack, amongst some other 
small things that escape me at the moment as to why I need a root pw. Most 
people won't care about those issues anyway - but the way kcontrol acts when 
you try administrator mode is lame.
