It's also possible to use a form-based scheme (if that is what you're
looking for).  Container-based authentication isn't available, although you
could write a provider using whatever container-specific API is available
from your container vendor.

Should be (although the rap stuff is a bit experimental).  Changing the
password requires knowledge of the current account password; adding/deleting
users requires a domain administrator account.
