Have it installed in 5 websites from 2 different clients. No issues. You
need to be smart about the tables you share though. Those recommended by
the module documentation are a safe bet but you can share any other you
want/need, as, for example, the roles table (if you'll be using exactly
the same roles on each client website and on the controller website too).

Well, for many problems there are just no magic solutions. As this module
allows you to import users from all sorts of lists in several formats, you
can do your own filtering elsewhere (search for duplicates, using any
criteria you need, and eliminate them, either by querying the tables or by
dumping them to csv format, for example, and working on the data in any
other app that is convenient to you) and then use the result to add the
users you actually need to the controller site's users table.
