summary: - /home/ubuntu/snappy-bin should be added to sudoer's sercure_path
+ /apps/bin should be added to sudoer's sercure_path

I guess the implementation would be to add /apps/bin to the end of the secure_path so that apps can't override system binaries. The problem is that apps are not trusted (though they are confined) so adding them automatically to the secure_path needs thought. Can someone from the security team comment on this?

As a user, I wouldn't want to see different order in $PATH with sudo's secure_path. I don't care what's the order is, but will be very confused if the order is different.
