Maybe it's just a stupid idea,   i have not lot of knowledge in the dbus and 
kdesu mechanism.

But is that possible that the kdesu program do a bridge ?
App1 <---DBus---> kdesu <---DBus---> App2

Or maybe add an auth mechanism in DBus, using a shared cookie. (didn't you 
tell me it will be required in Windows ?)

Sorry if it sounds completely out of application

Olivier - waiting to see dbus in trunk :-)
