I thought it awfully suspicious that Samba required so few additional
packages and so little "glue work" to get an AD PDC going.  Now I
know why.

We *require*, not desire, but *require* OpenLDAP.  OpenLDAP is used
for, amongst other things, a Corporate email address book and by the
RADIUS server.  Eventually the entire set of network directory data
that currently resides in and is served by NIS+ will be in LDAP.

I'm beginning to suspect this is going to be Not Much Fun :(
