That's what I thought.  Especially since it's trivial to remove sudo.

Some system admin stuff on *buntu may require some extra thought since

in various fora, but anybody worried about security to the extent that
they refuse to use sudo probably shouldn't be using pointy-clicky
admin tools to start with.
