Okay, two things:
1) I think a better way of implementing this type of stuff is for
gnome-system-monitor to have two modes - an admin mode and a user
mode. You might have two binaries and .desktop files, one marked as
"this needs to be run as root", or you might just have it so if you
decide not to enter the root password it runs in user mode.
I know I've said this a few times now, but I'm still not sure
how you feel about it?
2) What you use a lot is irrelevant, unfortunately :-) A UI optimised
for your use is unlikely to be the most optimal UI for all users.
