Hi Josh,

Thanks for the project information.  I was hoping to accomplish this using 
the existing local password backend currently in place along with the new 
LDAP backend we're in the process of creating.  It looks like the pdbsql 
project is aimed toward using a mysql database... which would be helpful in 
 using multiple backends, but I don't think I could use it to include the 
existing backend could I?
