As long as there is a need to know 'who did what' among more equally righted 
admins, it is sensible to give them the exact same rights under different 
names. (Group root can still be blocked by chmod g-rwx *). If sudo solve this 
problem entirely, giving a named user 100% access then go for sudo. I have 
had bad experience with sudo, and the 'all for one, one for all' root account 
on unix. There is more than one god, just depend on your religion...


By the way, how do you know that suits trust geeks? Are you a geek or a suit?
