It would be cool to be able to:

     Click on a RPM link to download the RPM file
     and then have an installer kick off that shows
     the RPM info and asks for an installation
     confirmation.  Then, prompt for the root
     password before actually installing the package.


This would be even cooler if there was a standardized app that prompts
for the root password (as it seems like there is, in gnome) and have it
do something like sudo does, i.e. only prompts again after a
configurable amount of seconds.


It uses consolehelper to authorize and run gnorpm as root.
