    I guess SqlLite would work well, I just had a ready available 
postgress DB available. I am using such simple sql it should be 
compatable with almost all databases. I am not a fan of Flat files, If 
that were the case I should just parse an existing sudoers formated file 
and be done with it.

    I'll add a more generic select of databases in the next release 
sometime next week

LDAP should not be that hard to implement, though I have never used it. 
I'll have to add this as the research to do list. Though that probably 
would be a great solution cause I would not have to build a screen to 
populate the data just export it from an existing DB and let the admin 
add it though his normal Ldap screen.
