Drupal permissions based on Workgroups

What happens when the one guy who has access to manage users on your Drupal website leaves? Do you have a team of people that needs to work on the website, but those people change over time? Do they all have a SUNet ID? Take advantage of the Stanford WebAuth Module features and manage access by mapping Stanford workgroups to Drupal roles.
