Does it get installed as a dep or recommends of a Trinity meta-package? Debian users traditionally prefer sudo for selective commands only or not at all, unlike Ubuntu. Sudo from Debian is installed here but I use only su in the terminal and kdesu (not kdesudo) for a few root X apps, as described in an earlier post. I don't know much about desktop-base|desktop-base-trinity. Neither are installed here. I use a selective Trinity installation on Squeeze with LXDE also installed. Everything runs fine. But yes, any core system component from non-Debian sources will worry Debian traditionalists.
