Personally, this is why I like sudo - it's clean and controllable should
you need it to be controlled. 

su means giving the root password (and thus access to *everything*),
sudo means giving the user their own password and then controlling what
they can do (and in the case of a self administered box, that means the
grand total of 0 effort). 

Not really sure why this thread turned the way it did, but enjoying it
anyway :-).
