I find this in the sudoers man-page:

+secretaries   ALL = PRINTING, /usr/bin/adduser, /usr/bin/rmuser

and indeed this will work, but will the adduser/rmuser scripts populate LDAP
or /etc/passwd/shadow? When I tested it added the user to passwd/shadow and
not to LDAP, and in LDAP is where I want my users to be. Can I then still
use adduser/rmuser?
