It only depends on Python because I wasn't [consciously] aware of the existence of python-minimal. Your patch LGTM. we really want to extend sudo with eh, a large programming

I enabled Python support in sudo because it exists for the same reason that Guile does.

If we want a less hackable sudo - certainly a defensible position - that's fine by me. If we do, then yes, I think Python is reasonable considering the alternative (C).
