It is. My library's API is very simple and high-level. Apps are not supposed to control every single thing. libgnomesu will use either consolehelper, PAM, a modified version of 'su' (using shadow passwords or just /etc/passwd if no shadow is available) or sudo (although this latter is broken so I've disabled it). It isn't designed to replace the entire authentication system, but merely to provide a high-level wrapper around whatever is available on your system.
