Sudo is useful.

For example, sudoers configured for some users (on a home system) to run
one command: /path/to/xcdroast.

These users don't know any superuser password. The cd roaster is based on
gtk that checks to make sure it isn't runing setuid.

What are some safer and easier alternatives for this?
