And more than a month for me to actually respond, right? =D

This sounds easy enough.

I've been thinking about how to best integrate this functionality in
gksu. I believe this should really go inside libgksu instead of gksu the
app. It would be good that this functionality is automatically available
to anyone using the library.

A second worry is the way the patch is done today it will only work for
gksu, not gksudo and will also only work for storing the root password.
I could not find any definition of some metadata which was being used to
specify which user the given password is related to.

What do you think of both these worries?

Thanks and sorry for the delay =(
