Yup, that is one of the drawbacks of my previous idea.  That is why I  
suggest using some other tool to manage user accounts, and have that  
tool export the data to LDAP or passwd files.

Currently I have a billing system (a bunch of CLI scripts w/ a MySQL  
backend) to manage my accounts.  The scripts add accounts to both  
locations, and suspension just removes the passwd entry.

Anyone else have some more elegant ideas for user management?
