I think (Todd?) there's no way to bind mailing to a single command
at the moment.

Best I can think of you could do is:

	- either write a 'su' wrapper that handles this and disallow
	  'su' itself.

	- write a sendmail wrapper that checks if people should be
	  mailed and use 'mailpath', 'mailto' and 'mail_always' in
