I figure it could be difficult to convince the maintainers of
distributions or sudo hackers to make this the default, even if it is a
not that bad security concern.
What do you think of sudo providing a simple switch that would tell me
if a given command will require password confirmation? I am already able
to test that by actually running the command, so no security concern is
raised, I believe. That would make life much easier for my code.
Should I write a patch?
