;;; Commentary:
;; `sudo' support in Emacs.  Currently it has one feature.
;; * `sudoedit' command opens files as root using sudoedit program.
;;   This command needs emacsserver or gnuserv.
;;   Try M-x server-start or M-x gnuserv-start first.
;;   Be sure to you can run `sudoedit FILE' in shell.
;;; Code:

(defgroup sudo-ext nil
