A few years back, I did that with iPlanet LDAP, just ran a batch job out 
of cron to do an ldap query to LDIF, massage that to a list of e-mail 
addresses, compare to list of subscribers, then add or remove 
addresses.  Surely, there is a more elegant way to do it, also not 
hardly instantaneous.  You might be able to use Penrose or ApacheDS to 
make some glue as an LDAP front end into AD if needed.
