PolicyKit based gksu

gksu is a library and application used to ask the user for passwords to run programs as root. It is not a good option now that we have PolicyKit. Still, we still have applications which are not written to take advantage of the PolicyKit framework, and since making applications use it usually involves structural changes, a new version of gksu will provide functionality similar to the one provided by the current gksu to cover applications which still haven't been patched to use PolicyKit. The new gksu will use PolicyKit as backend, instead of su and sudo. This page intends to work as a notebook for planning/designing that new version.
