Thank you for this detailed answer.

In our case LDAP looks like the best solution: most sysadmins have some 
basic experience with LDAP, configuring it should not be that difficult.

ldap cons:
* Requires an interface for the CubicWeb instance managers to manage 
LDAP accounts. There are lots of PHP account managers out there, but 
their look'and'feel might be different from the look'and'feel of the 
CubicWeb instances.
