My first guess was 'why not patch sudo for some extra option', but you're
right, it would mess with someone's else code. But - is there any reason why
a simple tool to parse /etc/sudoers would not work? It would replicate some
of the work that sudo already does, but I assume that the format of the file
is pretty stable.
