When I have some time I'll post how to do this. Using powershell makes it very easy to extract the names from AD. It's the python / sed part that is more complex.

Very shortest answer:
You can do (almost?) anything that python can do.
Take care to indicate helper variables using _prefix.
for example you could open an exported file, append the tags that apply to all systems in that file, and use this to generate another python list.
and then you += (append) this to your all_hosts list.
obviously, if you know someone who knows windows ldap/AD *and* python well, then you have no reason for any 3rd party AD export software to do this :>
Whatever solution you come up with, please check if you can take the time to make some public documentation about it - this will help many people who aren't aware *how* much they can do in the cmk config files.
