I'm currently patching/modifying "libuser" to make it fully support
LDAP. The latest version from RawHide works awfully: it tries to invoke
ldap_modify_s to perform operations like adding a user or a group
account, when in fact, it should use ldap_add_s.

Right now, "luseradd" and "lgroupadd" are working perfectly for me.
There are still some rough edges I need to fix. They need some testing
also, I plan to release them for testing into rhl-beta-devel mailing
list for approval.
