Awesome idea...this is one of the things Matt and I talked about and
referred to the work you've done already.  I have a few questions for you.
 First of all...scripting the choice of Main LDAP or Slave LDAP should be
easy....it's simply a "fork" in the script....kind of an "if" "else"
scenario.  My question is this.....are you doing this over a WAN....do you
have multiple locations?  A Campus....or more spread out?  One domain?  Do
the home directories live only on the Main LDAP server or are you keeping
groups on different servers....????  How are you doing the home
