Is it possible to run "File Browser" as root on the latest version of Ubuntu (Jaunty)?

I'd like to create a launcher (shortcut) to run File Browser this way.

Create an application launcher that calls

gksudo nautilus

Also, you can specify the path to open in the File Browser. For example '/usr/share/java':

gksu nautilus /usr/share/java
