Owing to sudo not being enabled by default, I've previously de-sudoified
a few pages, ar5523[1] being the most recent.

Sometimes its use can contribute to command readability or convenience,
such as the export and import of keys described in SecureApt[2].  As
highlighted in its "comments and questions" section, the page's intended
audience should know of sudo beforehand.

With respect to most WiFi-related procedural pages, use of $ and # to
indicate commands requiring execution as non-root/root have been used.
