It's done (and available for preview now in git):
There's a example idea on the Wiki page above about how you could still
use Cobbler to store to disk, but get /some/ information from LDAP ...
I'll leave it up to users
to find creative ways to use this.
I ended up /not/ writing the SQL portions (yet) as that would be a lot
to maintain and it seems things like LDAP would be more useful. If
extremely large numbers of profiles/nodes run us into performance issues
(so far they haven't) there are probably better ways to speed up things
than that initially.
