Also, how many other people would be interested in a feature like this?  My 
company doesn't offer lifetime accounts either.  When their contract is up, we 
remove the domain.  It seems like this would be an unneccesary complication.  
You could also write a simple perl script that would check a flat file, or 
database, or whatever and if that account has hit it's expiry, then run 
vmoduser against it and disable the account.  Still not sure why you'd want to 
disable over delete.
