From the replies I got, I see that sudo is not the way to do it if I don't have the choice to be as restrictive as I want to be.
Is there a way to force "su" to ask for the root password regardless of the manner in which the command is invoked?
Sure -- edit the source and recompile.
Actually, in /etc/sudoers
which will force the user to use the password of the target user (i.e., root).
It comes that way by default in SuSE; I had to undo it, because I think that's a bad idea for everyone to have root password.
Of course, that doesn't solve _any_ of the problems listed earlier.
Someone can still use screen, less, vi, etc., to get a root shell
