i assume, sudo !$ would work in this case too then... meaning if you tried to run something you didn't have rights to, you could use 'sudo !$' to run the previous command with sudo and pass the arguments

In bash, with emacs keybinds (at least) "Alt-." (alt-dot) is a key binding to the last argument in previous command. I think is more useful because you can edit stuff

You can also check mine : for shorcuts like !^ , !:3 , !* , !$:h or !$:t ;)
