Because managing optional dependencies is complicated because your
application looks very different with or without them. These
dependencies are really required, i am not talking about stuff like
plugins, i'am talking about core features. I can't imagine what would be
the purpose of gst if it was not able to do stuff with privileges.

I'am also concerned about consistency and integration : we have one
filedialog, so lets have one password prompt for superuser actions. And
maybe it could be integrated within gnome-keyring, i don't know.
