Well, there are 2 kinds of users, root and everyone else. What everyone else 
does cannot be logged by the session they are running in because it does not 
have enough privileges to log to the audit system.

For the root user, it has enough privileges to log. We are working on a 
solution for this problem. I think most security targets are only interested 
in actions performed by the root user since they can affect the machine in 
many ways.

So, as it stands today, it can't be done with the audit system. We hope to 
have something that starts to address the problem soon.
