Why don't you have a look at one of the frameworks out there? I've been
looking at Zend, lately. Seems to have some nice features. Also, for
something more fully featured and packaged, you could look at Prado.

Zend, for example, has a set of classes to handle ACLs. I'm pretty sure
that Prado supports LDAP authentication (I know Horde does).

As for a template engine, why not just use php? That's what php was
designed for, after all. I mean, respectfully, why bother to learn the
arcanities of a templating language like smarty, when you already are
using one with php?
