autentification: ldap + db

The current implemented autentification schemes are exclusives: either 
you are using ldap, or your are using db. I'd like to use both, because 
in my case developers have an account on the host running bugzilla, 
managed by ldap, but external people susceptible to report bugs don't, 
and I don't want to create ldap entries for them.

I had a quick look at the code. It seems quite easy to add a new method, 
called LDAP+BD, that would discriminate which backend to use looking at 
the login: email-like logins would be autenticated against the database, 
and others against the ldap, using existing code.

Am I missing something there ?
The harder it is to obtain matching hardware, the more the customer will 
insist on an exact match
If you have an exact match the customer will say " Matching isn't 
important, don't you have anything cheaper?"
