Rumor control has it that those perl scripts are outdated and that the 
expected structure and/or rules may have since changed.

Also there is a reported problem that there is no efficient mechanizm 
for returning the last used uid or if there is, that it is so new there 
is little documentation on how to use it.

I've just had a discussion with Adam Willaims from the OpenLDAP side 
about this.
