My point also. Though due to nss, it is not needed, it might complicate
things, it's yet-another-really-not-needed-daemon, overkill for most
users. 
Using something like libuser, it would be easy to have a unified
userinterface for users/groups regarless of wether they are in text file
or an ldap server.

The question is ofcourse, _why_ should ldap be used as a backend for
this, for _all_ users ?
