I'm not sure where the single quotes are coming from--I certainly
don't get them here.  I get just the double quotes whether I specify
--with-ldap-conf-file=/etc/sudo-ldap.conf or if I take the default
location.  What operating system are you seeing this behavior on?

I agree that the very different display is sub-optimal.  It may be
possible to make the LDAP output appear more like the file-based
sudoers info, though I'm not sure what to do with the per-command
options.  I suppose they could be transformed into Defaults!command
type entries.  Merging the two may be as simple as breaking up the
listing stage so that Defaults options are printed at the same time.

Was there any special configuration you had to do to use Active
Directory that should go in README.LDAP?

As for a timeline, it depends on the level of testing.  The more
things get tested, the more confident I will be ;-)
