We have a few installations where we do not use AD or LDAP. I believe
it is more common than you think that the same box will be a file server
and and email server. Some people will change their password via
windows domain member "change password", and others that are offsite
that use email only will change via usermin. I believe this is a good
example of the "migrate" functionality.
