[Slapt-get-devel] Gslapt desktop shortcut (mainly)

I must say I find slapt-get and gslapt great tools! I've only got a 
couple of things which I would like to see added.

First, in the gslapt.desktop shortcut, wouldn't it be useful to have the 
"Exec" field use "gnomesu $PATH/gslapt" instead of "$PATH/gslapt" as it 
is now? For the KDE-menus, a similar kdesu (or what it's called) could 
be added. This way, it's easy to start gslapt and upgrade from within 
any user with root capabilities. For now, it's only useful for a 
graphically logged in root to have this shortcut..

Second, when --search'ing for a package in slapt-get, it's quite easy to 
find the packages you want, but it's sometimes a bit tedious to type the 
entire names when installing. If I try for example:
slapt-get --install gecko-sharp

I get "No such package:", even though this would be the only match to 
gecko-sharp-2.0. As of now, I have to do:
slapt-get --install gecko-sharp-2.0

Does these features sound like something you could/would include?

Best regards and thanks for great software,
