But on the `sudo` front, upstream Sudo finally made a change that I
can't believe took so incredibly long:
The current stable release of the sudo 1.9 branch is version 1.9.6p1.
Major changes between version 1.9.3 and 1.9.2:
Sudo no longer refuses to run if a syntax error in the sudoers file is
encountered. The entry with the syntax error will be discarded and sudo
will continue to parse the file. This makes recovery from a syntax error
less painful on systems where sudo is the primary method of superuser
access. ...

Just a quick note that this change *theoretically*[0] obsoletes
visudo(8) since you won't break your sudo.

[0] But still use it.

I should have noted that `visudo` is one of the main places that has the better syntax error reporting...  So yes, still use it.  :-)
