Currently, Inquisitor's build and maintenance scripts/makefiles use sudo to obtain root privileges when they need them.

On some system, theoretically, there could be other preferred method to obtain root. For example:

  • Do nothing - "I'm already and always root"
  • su
  • kdesu
  • gksu
  • Usage of some sort of virtualization system (vzctl run, hsh-run --rooter, etc)

We should have some option in configuration for user to specify preferred root obtaining mechanism.
