You aren't doing anyone a favor by making that difficult.

Fair enough, there are obviously good arguments either way.

Odd, then, that no one has presented an actual argument showing something that would break with /sbin and /user/sbin at the end of the default PATH. Or a simple, intuitive solution to becoming root with root's path without changing your working directory in the case where the paths are different.

A power user can figure it out and the rest I'd rather
not have screwing around in a terminal, even if the worst they can do
is just screw up their /home/1user because ultimately someone will
have to go down their because 1user called his sysadmin buddy and
memorized a few commands and subsequently really screwed the pooch
because they thought "Now i'm an expert too!!"

If you think people can't learn to use the command line you should just walk away from unix-like systems now.
