non-root postfix admin; sudo -vs- super

Greetings all,

With particular relevance to potato...

I see that by default the files in /etc/postfix are owner: group
root:root.  This obviously doesn't lend itself to the contents thereof
being admin'ed by admins who don't otherwise enjoy the total freedom of
the system (nor is it best for those of us who like to spend as little
time as is necessary as root).

There would seem to be (at least) three solutions:

* different owner:group and mode

* use sudo -or- super to allow postfix admins to do what is necessary.

What do people see as the relative merits of these?

What are the differences between sudo and super in these kind of

Any alternate solutions?
