This is a bit off-topic in relation to your original message, but
related to the sudo update.

On one of my hosts I have special allowances via sudoers in order to
rsync while preserving permissions ... the sudo update whacked the
lines for my backup hosts, but left the line for my wheel access in

( I had backups of /etc from hours before, so it wasn't an issue. )
