I recently need something similar, but wanted everything sent to a remote
syslog server. A friend of my suggested install rootsh or sudosu as the
shell and wrap it in a script that pipes everything to syslog using a script
I haven't had time to set it up, but it seems like it could work. If you
didn't want remote syslog, just pipe it to a local file.
