[sudo-workers] closing all the file descriptors

sudo is a great tool.
On occations I have wanted to pass extra information (e.g. X11
authentication cookies) when I use sudo.
Is there good way to pass authentication cookies without having to run
sudo twice (once to pass the info and once to run the command)?
There is a way to pass such info via file descriptor 3, but sudo
closes all its file descriptors greater than stderr (2). Would a patch
to add an option to change this behaviour be accepted? I'll happily make
such a patch.
