Do the "ldapsam:trusted: and "ldapsam:editposix" extensions provide - 
(pause whilst I search for the correct word) - "equivalent" 
functionality to the IDEALX tools?  Or are they solutions for different 
applications?  For "typical" applications, with a PDC, mixed Unix and 
Windows workstations, file and print sharing - are the extensions a 
simpler way to achieve the - (wait, need to substitute word again) - 
"equivalent" level of LDAP integration?
