Partway there, but not quite enough for me, sorry. The new function
tries to display a command, but doesn't quite succeed at that (see

In addition, it still runs this "kdesu_stub", making it impossible to
use sudo's fine-grained command control to allow kwlan to administer the
network without giving away all control of the system. 

In my opinion, the bug should probably be transferred to kdesu at this
point, or use of sudo *instead* of kdesu should be added to kwlan. I'm
hesitant to trust kdesu, and since sudo is the point of privilege
escalation, I want to be able to use its functions properly.
