Why in the world do you want to get rid of gksu? It's a super handy
tool for nothing but running graphical apps as root. It does not
require gnome. And forking or replacing a tool "for the sake of having
our own" is not worth it at all.
I hope this didn't sound harsh, but your statement simply doesn't
make sense to me without a very good reason.
