Though at the risk of the dreaded featuritis, why not
extend this little script to operate in 'suid' mode (with
taint checking, of course) so that regular users can do
stuff without 'sudo' or 'su' such as restart the Apache
server or DNS?
A little 'chmod +s', checking of $< and it might be
that exponentially more useful. Of course, 'suid' mode could
be an option, such that it doesn't explicitly have to
be suid, but if it were, you can be even more lazy.
