Very cool!

I've not looked at the code yet, but just reading your page it looks
like this tool would be a good replacement for the controlpanel in 9.

My only concern would be about root privileges. Since the majority of
tools require root access, how do you handle switching to root? I.E. I
don't want to have to enter my root password multiple times when I open
the Software Manager, then the Network Configuration. Is that something
you have considered adding?
