I'm not sure this is possible to do with sudoers. Please post the
lines you would expect to see in the file. I think that kind of
behaviour would require patching sudo, and would be inconsistent with
the sudo documentation found anywhere on the internet.

I'm fairly sure users who add themselves to sudoers know to replace
"su -c" with "sudo" when they read documentation, so this doesn't
really seem like an issue.
