      One more gloss:

      Mulapannasa-Atthakatha 2.386

      Sugataati su.t.thugataa suppa.tipannaa kaarakaa yuttapayuttaa.
      Evaruupaapi hi ekacce bhikkhuu atthi. Duggataati du.t.thugataa
      duppa.tipannaa kaayada.lhibahulaa vissa.t.thakamma.t.thaanaa.
      Evaruupaapi ekacce atthi.

      "Well-gone, intent on going (practising) well (by the good way)."

      However su.t.thu is a usual commentarial explanation of the prefix su-.
