Then please, do try to extend it within the existing framework.  We
built it for you to use, so why not build your MySql backend behind the
OpenLDAP backend, and leave the rest as-is?  Just don't ask us to tear
apart the rest of the structure - the design has been quite

I don't mind the discussion (except it really has become circular), but
until we talk about code it will be your thoughts on what the world
should look like vs our running code, and it doesn't make it a fair
discussion, nor does it help us help you build it.
