Well, as I said, I was thinking about the Fedora tools (which have also been 
mentioned in the discussion, I didn't notice we went back to hp-setup), not 
the HP-specific hp-setup tool. system-config-printer now uses PolicyKit for 
authentication and thus should NOT be run as root (it will, or at least is 
expected to, ask for the root password and then do that specific operation 
as root).
