ahhh... ok. but wouldn't any existing work in that area be focusing on
LDAP? ie you're creating a whole lot of work for yourself, and the
chances that someone else already has done an area of that work are
greater with LDAP.
Also, I would hate to be admin on that cluster if you weren't around.
still a cute idea though.
