comment How do I sudo a command in a script without being asked for a password?
-1 If this seems like a good idea, you'd be way better off just set a password on your root account and use z7sg's solution; that's just as easy, and doesn't create this very dangerous security issue.

comment How do I create and use keyboard shortcuts in a Gtk app that I am developing?
It looks good, although instead of passing in '1' as the arg to Gtk.AccelFlags, use one of the defined constants, shown at pygtk.org/docs/pygtk/…

Right, you need to create accelerators yourself; I've updated the example to show how.
