Alas because of the separation that kdesu has between a backend and a
frontend it can't work with sudo's password save mechanism and it asks
for a password every time which gets very annoying.  Arguably we don't
need it since sudo isn't used much now for GUIs most things use
policykit but that would need some consultation to work out.
