I stated my opinion in
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=533493

After thinking about this problem somewhat more in-depth, I am now
convinced that we can just disable the confirmation dialogs without
actually sacrificing security.

Answer from Colin Walters:

I believe this patch got in, but it's not the default so you need to pass
--disable-acl-prompts or something like that.

Since our current desktop security model does not allow us to make any
use of this security question, we should disable it IMHO.

Any objections?
