So called 'non unix account' support was removed prior to release.  It
is not intended to return - certainly not in the guise perviously seen. 
You need an 'add machine script' and 'add user script' to fill in the
bits of LDAP.

Generally, I like the idea that we might be able to do this without
scripts, but that's not possible at the moment.
