I think this is what you're looking for:

Subject: [development] "Sudo" Module


I'm very interested in UI design, and mapping the design of Drupal admin
interfaces to pre-existing, long-standing frameworks. I'm currently looking
for a module that allows a "site manager" to quickly switch to and from the
root user of a D6 site - in my mind's eye this module displays a block with
a password field and a submit button; entering the root password and hitting
the button is broadly equivalent to "sudo su" in Unix. Once the user has
root privileges, a click on the "step down" button in the same block returns
them to their saved regular session.


My question: does a module exists that does this, or gets close to this? Or
is it possible to cobble together this functionality by using existing
functionality in already-existing D6 modules?
