Correct, I got my local sudoers working a few
days ago, so there's no longer any confusion on
my end (but thanks for your reply).

However, guix's visudo should probably be patched
to allow editing of a *local* ~/etc/sudoers file,
which currently won't work because /usr/bin/vi
appears to be hard-coded.
