[sudo-workers] Synchronous writing to i/o logs

according to the documentation: "All files other than log are compressed in gzip format unless the compress_io option has been disabled. Due to buffering, the I/O log data will not be complete until the sudo command has completed." Would it be possible to implement an option with functionality that would make these writes synchronous (for compliance reasons)? So if the command run by sudo would be killed, logs would be complete. Probably compression would have to be disabled in this usecase.
