Wow, had not seen that. Cool.
I've just had a look at the documentation, it should be ok, but would 
just need the schema used, and some example of association (LDIF format).

(I have not looked at the code) Is it using the posixAccount schema ? 
(my idea is to get the answer here, then on the Web via mail-archives ;-)

Could it use a part of an AD LDAP server ? (in the context of an 
NT4-compatible DC ADS)

Anyway, I'll work on a testbed for thing, I may need sooner than I expect...
