I don't use sudo

The systems I use and the systems I setup for others never have sudo
users setup ... unneeded.
Should I delete the sudo package? Would that cause some internal
conflicts? they all have Debian Mate desktops... if that makes any
difference, I think not.
You can delete package but some package may depend on it. With "aptitude
why" you can see if some other package needs "sudo" package. Here's an

     $ aptitude why sudo
     i   kde-plasma-desktop Depends plasma-desktop (>= 4:5.10)
     i A plasma-desktop     Depends kde-cli-tools (>= 4:5.14)
     i A kde-cli-tools      Depends libkf5su5 (>= 4.96.0)
     i A libkf5su5          Depends sudo
$  aptitude why sudo
i   inxi Recommends sudo

!!! thanks
