Why you don't just create a second user account (maybe called "admin")
and use this for administration only?
I think you can change the user in a terminal with "su - user" (e.g.: su
- admin), then you have to enter the password of admin. Now, you can use
sudo (Of course, you have to enter the password again if you do sudo.
Hence, you have a third level of password protection :-))
