Karsten told me that if you run as root in a standard debian the script can
bootstrap without any passowords because it will do the sudo magic itself.

What I had in mind was that when a user invokes the wrapper script he will be
prompted for the root password (sudo).

In contrast to Ubuntu (at least I guess Ubuntu does so) Debian does not permit
any user sudo rights.  So you will have to teach the user to configure sudo
first before this might work.  I guess you mean something like gksu or things
like this which asks for root password.  I admit I never dealt with such stuff
but I might have a look into this.  On the other hand I'm not fully convinced
that providing a menu item (amongst a lot of menu stuff) is better than
providing a well written /usr/share/doc/gnuemd-server/README.Debian.  But
perhaps I'm too text centric ...

Kind regards
