    If they don't drop gksu package (never ever surely), and only nautilus-gksu it's no big deal.
    Just use nautilus actions package (in repos) or even nautilus actions extra package to add that 'open as administrator' function to the right click menu.

    Yes, it's only gksu-nautilus, AFAIK. The bug I cited claims that nautilus shouldn't be run as admin. Let's see. Maybe by the time PP comes out I may actually become proficient @ CLI ;)

    How the hell are we supposed to manage the countless permission-limited files then? Some kind of efficient bash commands? I'd like to see that.

    You can always fire nautilus from a root shell.
    You can create a shortcut that does that ...
