Now that sudo has include support has anyone looked at an option to have
sudo just warn or ignore invalid include files instead of causing sudo to
fail completely ?

I am looking to do automated sudo setup with includedir directives and a
file for each group. It would be nice to be able to tell sudo to ignore
possibly invalid include files instead of failing completely for all

I understand that they should be caught by the syntax checker, but i'd
like to not have a bad file impact any other users in the short interval
between creating the file and validating it's sytax.
