Sudo is by far the best tool for this job. I run monit as it's own
unpriviledged user too.

I have also stopped letting it restart processes (passive mode) as I
want to know what's gone wrong before running anything as root. Monits
restart functionality will be useful in case of a persistent
intermittent known bug until it's fixed. I do keep the procmatch rules
in place in case they are needed.
