The best way to do this is to use sudo 1.6.8 or higher and give them
access to sudoedit.  E.g.

Cmnd_Alias	RESOLV = sudoedit /etc/resolv.conf

Then the user can run "sudoedit /etc/resolv.conf" and it will use what
the VISUAL or EDITOR environment variable says to use.  The editor will
run as the invoking user so there is no problem with shell escapes.
