Thanks! However we don't have the resource to get that done because: 

   1. Own team doesn't know how to program in low level language like
      C/C++, only knows about web app, javascript, tcl, php, perl etc.
   2. No resource planned to hire external team.

So maybe, still go for crontab solution. But I guess it's going to be
un-reliable. emmm... problem.. As there are about hundred users whose
access is going to be limited each by a different date, it is some a bit
too much work to do manually.
