also sprach mlh at zip.com.au <mlh at zip.com.au> [2004.09.30.1622 +0200]:
>  mlh     ALL=(root,%root,%bin,%daemon,%sys) /bin/id

This merely means that mlh may invoke /bin/id under the context of
root, or any users that are members of root, bin, daemon, or sys.

Thus, e.g.

  sudo -u bin /bin/id

will work because user 'bin' is a member of group 'bin'.

Sudo does not mess with groups. I would be happy to be proven wrong.
