That is why sudo is so convenient. I never meant that you would need
to do everything as root, only that you needed to be able to do things
as root. I almost never do a su - root, and use sudo almost whenever I
need root powers.

I keep my config files writable only by root, and use sudoedit to edit
them. I use sudo apachectl to restart apache etc...
