No, no, and more no.  I know how to install packages using sudo.  Lemme show you the output.
markp at southernprince:~$ sudo apt-get install mame
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package mame
markp at southernprince:~$
Now using aptitude.
markp at southernprince:~$ sudo aptitude install mame
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "mame"

What an annoyance.  You'd figure it'd be in the repos.
