It is time to learn about sudo, then. Write short scripts that do exactly as much as whatever extended priveleges (root or otherwise) are necessary for, and no more, and give exactly specified users the permission to execute them under another exactly specified account without being asked for a password. Your /etc/sudoers might grow somewhat, but the result is a completely controlled environment.

Makeshifts last the longest.
