while that does look enticing I fear it would tempt us from the one
true way of always running the script(that is yet to be written) to
fix things, it would be too easy to make just one fix.

That is a generous offer even though I will not partake.  the reason
is that I do not want to have a large number of config files to
manage, think deleted users for example, if I always start at the
beginning and and go to the end things are always consistent.  And I
expect to run this job < 10 times a year so consistency and ease of
understanding trumps incremental convenience.  So it will be one big
file with 400 users in it.
