    Avoid using sudo. · 55dc560a

    There is a bad interaction between suexec (through which newnode is called)
    and sudo.  suexec removes the "wheel" group before invoking newnode and our
    configuration of sudo requires the invoking process to be in wheel to avoid
    password prompts.  Older (pre-1.7?) sudos apparently did a runtime check of
    the group file to see if you were in wheel, and thus would still work.
    Newer sudo's just use the current process's group info, and don't work.
