Actually, there's a better way. The authors of sudo already considered
this. Set "VISUAL" to gedit, and use `sudo -e`. That invokes the editor
as non-root on a temporary file, and copies that temp file into place
Completely forgot about that one! I remember using crontab's similar
function was the first time I encountered vi, that was lots of fun...
