Problem is, far as I know, without using nss_cache, or something like it 
(libnss-db and friends, etc), you cannot cache credentials in a truly offline 
environment like notebooks run into for LDAP credentials using nscd. This 
coupled with nscd's track-record or silent failures that cannot be fixed 
reliably make the use of synchronized cached accounts a holy grail.
