[Cialug] sharing user credentials

Lets say you have 2 computers, each with a number of virtual hosts, say 5
regulars (total) and you occassionally bring up new hosts for short-term
projects. You've got a couple users with sudo access and a couple users

 * You want to be able to quickly add users to all virtual hosts and
likewise revoke the users in the same way.
 * NFS cannot be used, nor can Samba, nor can Gnome VFS
 * It should be easy to add an ssh key to all the hosts
 * It would be nice if the user's home directories were available on all
hosts but not a necessity

How would you accomplish the above?

How about if you have a third computer on a distant network (behind NAT)
that also wants to benefit from the above shared authentication?
