OK, consider the following just as example: let's say, that I've got 50
machines for tuning using "sudo". I want to give some permissions to every
user of every single machine; but the privileges are tied only to machine,
where user has his account - and not to entire network (so I cannot use ALL
term). In such way, I have to make 50 different /etc/sudoers - just because
I can't use common "localhost" name.  :(  Besides: what if someone will
change the name of his machine?

Does there exist a way to define "Host_Alias LOCALHOST" - which limits
privileges just to local machine - but without using real name and IP (it
_can_ be changed in the future)?
