I wouldn't expect that many people will use a somehow site-specific 
ldif-output. I can see how you figure out which base-DN you can use and where 
to store users, groups and computers. But how do you handle existing 
users/groups, how can you specifiy additional options (objectclasses like 
posix or kerberos), how can I sort my large database in several containers? 
Do you handle merging of existing and new accounts (which means you'd need to 
contact ldap)?
