Less known Solaris 11.1 features: Auditing pfedit usage

You have allowed junior to edit the httpd.conf and and some nice evening, you are sitting at home. Then: You get alerts on your mobile: Webserver down. You log into the server. You check the httpd.conf. You see an error. You correct it. You look into the change log. Nothing. You ask your colleagues, who made this change. Nobody. Dang. As always. Classic "Whodunit".
Okay, in order to prevent this for future changes, you want to record this kind of information. And working with pfedit is really useful in order to do so.
