Description

Did you ever work on a config file for over 5 minutes just to discover on saving that you forget to sudo the editor? Rootforce solves this problem, as it (metaphorically) allows to create a big red sudo button which gives the running editor the permissions it needs. In fact it’s built to be called by a hotkey daemon like the one built into KDE to change the capabilities of a running process.

See https://gitorious.org/rootforce/ for more details.
