Hi Luca,

Not meaning to intrude in an existing discussion, but your option of 
locking out sudo users plus alerting the sysadmin
seems like a pretty solid solution to me. I do not see any security 
problem here. Locking down is usually safe, as opposed to opening up. 
Disclaimer: I am not a security expert. This seems like common sense.

I would say, lock and load!

Kind regards, Guus.
