I agree - maybe an explanation would help us understand this but so far 
it sounds insane. I have to maintain a environment for 400 developers that all 
require root (through sudo) for their work... Unfotunately that means that 
they sometimes go ahead and install their own packages - I can bet you, the 
day after this change goes in, the number of systems broken by installing 
incompatible or bad packages will go from 1 or two a week to dozens... The 
only thing that saves us right now is file conflicts...
