Python would be critical, see as an example how the password lockout
code is tested with python in the patch series I published recently:
This is the "This project of course includes the development of unit
tests." element of the task.

I look forward to seeing your application, but I would also suggest that
if you don't yet program in python, that you would need to particularly
clearly describe how you expect to handle the unit testing side of this,
and may wish to apply to another project that does not have this
Please also include examples of your work in C, a description of the
LDAP attributes that would be involved and links the the relevant
elements in the WSPP documentation.
