Are you sure you want that? As a user you go to root space. So many sudo
rules are available, that one must stop somewhere. Personaly, I'd like to
see 770 (and others) the same way as regular unix boxes. Root account,
user account, su, permissions... It would be hard to sell, I know, but  this
is the list, not the store.
Finaly, to change sources.list takes less time then send the mail, I hope.
Best regards
