Hmm, that is odd. I am not trying to be on the bleeding edge here, my
sudo setup is taken directly from the RHEL 6.2 documentation concerning
identity management. It would be very strange if RHEL was running such
an experimental and bleeding edge thing in the base RHEL setup.

So I guess to back up a bit here, IF sudo were working with SSSD as it
will in the future would the aforementioned directive be the way to make
it work. Understanding of course that for now it doesn't.
