Bug Description

Dear Developers,

In casper-a11y-enable script the add_sudoers_file applied settings block gksu and sudo GUI application usage.
This function puts following contents in /etc/sudoers.d/a11y-sudo file:
# To allow accessibility in GTK to work with sudo.

I reported this issue in Ubuntu Accessibility list few months ago, because for example both sudo gedit and gksu gedit commands doesn't working if access=v3 boot parameters are used. Yesterday again reported this issue some users in Orca List.
If the user remove the /etc/sudoers.d/a11y-sudo file,
