Sounds much better ;-) (I also like Marcus' idea about using sudo
and/or kdesu.)

For the records: I'd like to have the following permission levels in the
package management:
a) check for updates ("suse-watcher" style)
b) install updates (including uninstalling obsolete and installing new
requirements from existing installation sources)
c) install / remove any package from existing installation sources

The problem with zen-updater is that it currently needs b) and c),
therefore people can easily add and remove other packages with
zen-installer/-remover even if the admin isn't aware of this.
