I have recently noticed that xdg-utils description contain a xdg-su in the list of files:

Testsuite for xdg-utils is available from http://portland.freedesktop.org/wiki/TestSuite
So I thought it might be interesting to give it a try, but nothing happened, tried xdg-<tab>, xdg-su didn't appear, looked in the whole system, didn't find it. I didn't search further, until I noticed in PCLinuxOS Lxde (that I remastered with the French locale), that PCManFM was default configured with "xdg-su -c '%u'" in the advanced preferences, and I wondered why, if xdg-su is not provided, so I asked Neal, who told me that it is the default configuration in PCManFM, and that he never changes the configurations when he provides the program along with his Lxde versions.
I thought I would come here to ask about this:
* should we have xdg-su in the systems, or if not shouldn't the information about it be removed from the description ?
* how come it is setup this way in PCManFM ? Is it a default configuration which has not been modified ?
Of course it is not a big trouble, but I thought I would come and point to it, in case it can be fixed.
