I concur that sudo is really a very good way of managing privileges.   
I don't even know the root passwords on the systems that I administer  
(OK, I do have them stored in a nice secured place if I ever do need  


In fact, I use sudo for managing too.  My question is not about sudo itself, 
it's about the possible risks (if any) of having a default installation 
(FreeBSD7-RELEASE) which assigns ownership of the root folder to root:wheel, 
thus allowing anyone with wheel privileges be able to see (and copy btw) root 
folder contents.
