I didnt really mean point sssd at something else besides IPA, but where any 
other "package" can do what sssd and HBAC can achieve....

In a way I'm looking to justify why we buy IPA as opposed to connecting 
directly to AD or using something like Likewise.

Right now, the SSSD is making certain assumptions that the server
providing the HBAC rules is an IPA server. However, I know that JR
Aquino wrote a pam_python module a while ago that works (without offline
capabilities) with the current HBAC approach.

Things will get a little more complex when the HBAC rules are extended
to support time ranges, though. But there's no firm timeline on that
