I mean it "seems a bit backwards" in the sense that an expert probably
wouldn't be asking questions where the answer is a simple "sudo
<whatever>", whereas someone who is not an "expert" wouldn't have sudo
configured cause they wouldn't choose "expert install" and therefore
giving them the answer "sudo <whatever>" wouldn't be usefull.

Mmmm, true, I think there are options where you can fine tune the
