The trickiest part is defining the 'user'. Generally, this sort of
thing is done by creating a file; if the file's not there, it's the
first time. Some versions of sudo will create a file called
.sudo_as_admin_successful in the user's home directory; others create
/var/lib/sudo/<username> as a directory, and storing information
there. Either technique works well for recognizing a first-time user.
