running a command with sudo
In theory you should use "visudo" to edit /etc/sudoers.. this adds
file locking and verification.
You could do something with the $EDITORS environment variable to call
a custom script...
but then visudo thinks of that and tries to stop you...
In conclusion your code looks OK!
