Yes, I thought so to...

So I wrote two simple examples so that you can see the behavior of sudo
(and exec*() ).

prompt$ sudo false && echo true || echo false
prompt$ sudo true && echo true || echo false

As you can see sudo simply "forwards" the exit code (or rather it never
see it as it has left total control to the sub program).
