Open as administrator in Nautilus

It's sometimes useful to be able to open a folder as administrator in Nautilus, the Gnome file browser, for example to edit a configuration file or drop a new theme in the root directory for all users to be able to use.
I had enabled this feature in Lenny, but not in Squeeze. This post on the Debian forum reminded me how to do it. (Install nautilus-gksu.)
