Right. Don't use sudo. For a server you're not physically sitting in
front of, you *definitely* want to log in as root instead of using sudo.
Please don't make this misguided change. Or if you must, make it
optional. Just a checkbox when setting the root password would suffice.
Or better still, make it possible not to set the root password at all,
if you don't want direct login as root. Use sudo for *everything*.
