    I just re-hacked my distro's updated version as it was mostly a
known quantity, to remove the function check in env.c then added 3
lines to the sudoers files.

## env_reset must be on for env_keep to fully work (allow functions)
Defaults env_reset
Defaults env_keep = "*"

Thanks again for addressing some of these issues so I won't
have to keep patching my own versions... ;-)  Have way too
many self-compiled/remade binary & source rpms to effectively
maintain... ug...
