Question help regarding consolehelper + userhelper

I want to write a python GUI program to manage all my shares (NFS, Samba) and local vfat partitions, in one place. For this I will need root access. I do not want to run the program with su or sudo as it will be highly vulnerable (IMO, pl tell me otherwise).
What I want to know is, will I be able to call this python script using the consolehelper + userhelper system?
If yes, can anyone help me how do I get consolehelper to find my program and run it as root?
I am running Fedora 2.
