"kdesu wireshark" is one I frequently use, and would be annoyed at having to
retype my password.
I also believe this is the wrong level to ask for a change in default sudo
behaviour - instead, I'd suggest encouraging distributions/sudo to change the
default value of timestamp_timeout - this way, the same issue you're worried
about would also be fixed for terminal sudo users, and overridable by people
who like the current behaviour.
a) is already implemented
b) doesn't require any kdesu changes
c) doesn't make kdesu act differently to sudo from terminal
