We've had excellent sendmail/cyrus integration for years, with
35,000 users.  It's done by having all users in the NIS map on
the mail server.  No modification to sendmail is necessary because
getpwnam() returns the passwd entry for the user.  Users can't log
in to the mail server, of course, because PAM rules prevent that.
The same thing could be done with other user databases, such as
LDAP.  Why would you ever need a different form of integration?
