[Gluster-users] Gluster and Netgroups

Has any of the developers thought about providing netgroup support for
gluster's NFS exports (nfs.rpc-auth-allow option)?  Editing the volume
every time for individual hostnames or even CIDR networks isn't great at
scale.  Netgroups + LDAP are great for many of our current NFS platforms
and I was hoping to see gluster have this ability. RHEL5/RHEL6/Ubuntu
can already be easily setup to support netgroups within the OS nss/sssd
layers so it is really just interfacing with them.
