sudo verses su in delete-company-database.sh

Me personally I cannot use the delete-company-database.sh as supplied because my postgres user account is set up as not able to login.

What I have to do is use sudo prefixed in each of the four places su is used (see attached svn diff), since I have sudo su privileges configured for my personal, non-root user account.

Would this be considered an advisable approach more generally enough to warrant applying that patch to trunk?
