What does "sudo -l" show?
It would be nice for sudo to check the ownership
of the sudo'd program and it's parent director(y,ies)
before executing it, but it's probably a little
difficult to do while avoiding races. Also slow?
Perhaps this check could be done as one of the visudo
exit sanity checks.
