Just a little thing, visudo calls your defalut editor, so, if you wrote :
setenv EDITOR [my editor, say pico]
in your .tcshrc, visudo will check if the editor is sudo compliant (pico is) and will launch it, so you don't have to learn vi to change sudo settings.

I agree, making these changes in sudo is DANGEROUS for security reasons !
