[packagekit] gpk-update with wheel?

Hi, I'm just curious if the gnome updater applet can be configured to 
use the wheel group for auth in Fedora 9 and thereby not need a root 
password. We run a fully integrated LDAP system with sudo, wheel, etc, 
and there is no root account. In the past we were able to get around 
this by adding "UGROUPS=wheel" to /etc/security/console.apps/<app>, but 
I can't seem to find a similar way of doing it with this updater.

Any help would be appreciated.
