[sudo-users] excluding commands from log_output

Hi All,

Quick Q

I've enabled log_output but would like to prevent certain commands from
being logged, like top for example.

I think one can use the NOLOG_OUTPUT tag for this though I'm still
not sure of the syntax to get this to work.

Any example for setting multiple commands to be excluded would be great

Lastly, would the above work in this scenario:
bob at host:$ sudo su - root
root at host:# top

Ie, when one invokes the top command sometime after sudo, during the
sudo "session".
