Well, if sudo was included in the base install, with a minimal add-on configuration,
it should be possible to make some user access freely to administrative command (perhaps using a special group like wheel...).
And, if i'm not wrong, sudo accept the PATH env variable in its config file to impose a "sane" PATH while using sudo.

is'nt it a good way to do the job ?
