An LDIF-to-sudoers-file conversion utility would be useful. I am moving
from LDAP to sudoers now due to migrating Linux clients to use AD, and no
desire to add the sudo schema to it. I'm enforcing /etc/sudoers via puppet,
keeping it under git revision control, and easing the migration on Linux by
using 'sudoers: files ldap' in /etc/nsswitch.conf until complete.
