+1 to removing the suders rules we have, there adding overhead and
contain enough wildcards that all they do is give people a false sense

this idea seems best to me, keeping passwordless sudo for a specific
user (not all users as with the current method) and only running the
parts of di-b that need privileges as root makes it less likely
accidents will happen with buggy code.
I don't think its any worse then the security implications of running
di-b as root.
