Yes, and yes

The latest patch is there, it should apply against 2.2 cvs (until the
passdb interface is done being backported from HEAD, at which time I
will have a newer patch up there).  There are 2.2.1a rpms there as well
with this patch incorporated.

At this point, it supports the PDC functions, Win2k SP2 logons (and
therefore, I would assume SP1, SP0, and NT4 . ..)

Still some minor cleanups I'd like to do when I next get some time:
Needs to compile against other SDKs than just OpenLDAP 2.x,
add the appropriate checks for LDAP SDKs to,
some SSL/TLS clean ups.
