 why the feature 'requiretty' is active when the sudo doesn't ask for
 password? In the sudores man page is: "...prevent a user from
 entering a visible password".

 Defaults       requiretty
 smith          ALL=(ALL)  NOPASSWD: ALL

 $ ssh localhost sudo su -
 sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
 From my point of veiw it seems like disadvantage :-(
