running programs as root in gnome

The lack of a kdesu style program for the gnome desktop has been a pain
for quite a while. But now I'm running redhat 8.0 which has a nice
little dialog that asks you for a root password.

Does anyone know if this dialog/program is going to get merged upstream?
It would make an excellent addition to the Gnome 2.2 or 2.4 desktop.

Does it rely on any redhat deamons or anything nasty like that?

Also is there a way to access it from the command line?
