Hi Andrew,

Thank you very much for your swift answers.

This was my fears and hopes ;-)

I have created a python script that synchronizes groups in an AD LDAP datab=
ase to match groups and users in pts. It uses pts interactive and this spee=
ds it up a little bit but not that much. The reads from the database goes r=
eally fast so there is no problem with the comparing. Only changes takes ti=
me. We have right now 22 groups and about 2650 users. A sync with a few upd=
ates takes around 2 minutes and I think that is ok. I'm thinking about usin=
g the timestamp on the group object to see if it has changed since the last=
 sync too to make it even faster.

I don't think that it is very important to make the change actions faster i=
n pts even if it would be nice. I can imagine that there are other stuff th=
at are way more interesting... maybe an LDAP based PTS/VLDB ;-)

Oh, also, if you're not already using 'pts interactive' or 'pts source',
using those may alleviate some overhead for bulk operations. But they
still will commit the db for every change.
