We have a lot of freelancers here. When we create an account for them we 
don't want to add the same user and password by hand to every system.

Sure. Once our AD is proven solid, we switch and then we can 
authenticate all services through the new system.
Until then we want to have two separated domains at the same time so we 
can have several weeks/month to make a soft switch until everything is 
production ready. This script would just keep the two domains "synced" 
without touching the production system.
