'sudo password' activates the root account and asks
you to supply a new root password, thereby getting you
back to how things are normally are.

Note that when you then run Synaptic or some other
admin package, the password you are asked for is your
user password rather than the root password you just
created. Took me a few days to get my head around this
way of thinking.
