So, alas, there's no way to get the result of the command that sudo runs?

    Well, as I showed in my other post, sudo does return the exit status of the command it runs.

    Unfortunately, the case where the command returns 1 seems to be indistinguishable from the case where sudo returns 1. I guess that little bit of ambiguity could be a big bummer. You might be able to get around it on a case by case basis by using wrappers for your commands.
