It would be nice to have this feature. Currently I add comment-entries
to all temporary sudoers rules (in LDAP) and
set a calendar-reminder for myself to remove them after expiration.
Having rules expire automatically would be nice.
You'd still have to remove them later manually, but at least they
would be disabled.
