  gedit - button to become root (feature request)

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gedit

  it would be a nice feature if one could become root while gedit
  already runs. it is annoying to have to exit gedit and start it again
  with gksudo gedit.

  (i have seen this feature in kde - seems useful.
  it just requires an additional menu entry and a dialog with the user to type 
in the root password).
