Hi Ben, et al.

I've been wanting to do that on one of the boxes here, however, I have not
had enough time to test it.  However, what I am doing is using SSH keys
and preventing root logins without a key.  I used the instructions found
here, for the most part: http://www.jdmz.net/ssh/

Although it isn't a perfect solution, I would prefer sudo, it is a whole
bunch better than loosing the primary backup server and the whole farm.

If you do get this working, please let us know, as I suspect this may be
one turn off's for may people wanting to use this backup package. I
especially was nervous about allowing root connections to my primary
server, even key'd ones.
