I wrote a simple program called ktsuss that works as gksu (it started
like an application for Kwort, but anyone can use it), but it is a lot
smaller and simpler than gksu. It doesn't have a keyring session and
probably it will never have so.
Anyways, it's only gtk2 dependent, so any with G* can run it.
You can download it from here:
