Alternative?: GUI su/sudo?

Hi there,

I am using Gentoo and want to use a graphical interface to run su and/or sudo. I know there is gnomesu, and Xsu/2 but the dependency list is about 17 other packages I would have to install. I am trying my hardest to not install gnome applications, and was wondering if anyone knew of a nice alternative to Gnomesu/Xsu.

I suppose I could write a small app in Python/Pyxfce but I was wondering if anyone had any better alternatives?

Thanks,
Lavacube

Wow, only 3 dependencies in Gentoo. Installed the Gnome Keyring, but that is no big deal for me. Works very nicely. Thanks. :-)
