It is apparently common knowledge that when operating under Apple's OSX platform any user with admin privileges already has root access. The public feels that even without putting in a password anyone in the admin group is already the equivalent of root.

In efforts to minimize the apparently unnecessary dialog boxes that ask for permission to go from gid=admin to uid=root we are hereby petitioning Apple to remove any further use of dialog boxes when making the transition from gid=0 to uid=0. Since the admin group is ALREADY root why can't you just stop asking us for authorization?
