Hi coreutils developers,
These below, are two patches that might be useful.

Ths susu patch brings the suauth functionality to coreutils.
It is a very simple patch to `su', which takes a list of uids from
/etc/susu_suauth. If a user is in the list, he can su to root without
Moreover it adds the SU_FROM env variable which is a netbsdism, and it's
very handy. From man su in netbsd: 
"...SU_FROM is set to the caller's login.  The invoked shell is the target 
login's.  With the exception of SU_FROM this is the traditional behavior 
of su."

The tiny readme of susu is here:

While you can take the patch here:

The second patch is rum.
You can directly read the readme here:

With the rum patch, rm will look at /etc/rm.conf and ~/.rm.conf, it will load a
list of protected files and directories, and it will not delete them.
To force the deletion of a protected entry the -ff option must be used.
(ex: rm -rff /etc).
I could't test the ROOT_CAN_UNLINK_DIRS case.

That's all.
Let me know what you think.

Best Regards.
