shell command history capturing

Why would you want to, when you could block su and make the user do a 

sudo -H -u USER command

or if you didn't want to type all that every time create a shell script with

sudo -H -u USER $@

You would then have all of the commands run as USER captured by sudo.

That would be very nice feature to add to sudo tho!
