Now all I need is documetation (I've started on it for the old case) and
some tests for the build farm.

As this is relitivly new code, and not a configuration that is likaly to
be exercised very often, it would be really neat to add some tests that
check that it keeps working.

Like adding non-unix accounts to varoius backends, reading the data back
with pdbedit and diffing it with a file.

Do you think you could manage that?
