Every application which can not use KDE internal features should be using
/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu (one can install KDE without kdesudo which would
make it the only valid path for native kdesu and kdesudo).
I actually think that we shouldn't use su-to-root but provide seperate desktop
files for KDE using X-KDE-SubstituteUID=true in order to have future proof
desktop files. Just a personal opinion though.
