I'm not a member of your community and wont to be him (at least at this time).
But I'm interested in your code. I found a part of it unoptimal (it's my opinion, it may be wrong, because i'm not qualified in programming - i'm just studying (and it's the reason for analysis of your source code)).

From words to action:

in libgksu.c:

/* we cannot pass 'password' as it has no \n */
pass = g_strdup_printf ("%s\n", password);
write (fdpty, pass, strlen(pass));

/* cleans the memory */
gksu_secure_free (pass);
gksu_secure_free (password);

may be:

write (fdpty, password, strlen(password));
write (fdpty, \n, 1);
gksu_secure_free (password);

we no need the `pass` variable, we no need `g_strdup_printf`.

Am I wrong?

Sorry for my bad english.
