True.  LDAP is definitely the way to go if you've got that capability.  

We use Active Directory that's controlled quite tightly at the corporate level, though, and they don't like the UNIX guys making changes to their schema and adding stuff willy-nilly.  :(

These days sudo does have a centralized form of configuration... LDAP.
But still. It's handy to have 1 config for multiple systems, even if
you have to manually distribute it.
