yup. soundz about right to me (with my limited knowledge of UNIX
security programming :) ).

Is this still looking like an exec out to a script? Anyone that is
taking this up will need to take this all into consideration. Also you
may want to look at how GNOME and KDE solve these issues, I think if I
VNC into GNOME on FC5 for instance, I can't shutdown/reboot.

Good Luck! ;)
