I thought about using supplementalCredentials, but I was worried that I
don't know what the format is. (I still haven't finished the crypto
work on DRSUAPI).
We could rename our current unicodePwd -> userPassword, ntPwdHash ->
unicodePwd, lmPwdHash -> dBCSPwd and krb5Key ->
The other interesting challenge in this are is how to implement the
'write to unicodePwd over LDAP', which has bizarre semantics (UCS2, with
" surrounding), which wouldn't normally fit well into our ldb interface.
