As I said in my other mail: I don't think putting the
passwords into secrets.tdb is particularly good, we would
have to create yet another mechanism for editing passwords
etc. I'm also thinking about clustered scenarios. We already
have the pain that the interdomain trust account passwords
are not in passdb. Why should we put more information into
secrets.tdb when we have a flexible mechanism around?
