[GRASS-dev] making a GRASS script go superuser and asking you a password before running its command

Can anybody help/suggest:

While making a script to install GRASS Extensions, i run into a problem.
GEM needs root access to complete its task.

Is there a way to get the script to ask the user for the password and process 
under root permission?

thank you
