Someone will eventually have to answer the question of why this is
better than using LDAP, PAM, and/or kerberos.



Because unlike those examples the L. Registry (per the sf web page):


"""
IS designed to be secure and lightweight, to let even early boot-stage programs like */sbin/init* to use it, instead of /etc/inittab file.
Is NOT an OS service that can become unavailable and make system unusable. It is just a library to access files according to a namespace.
Is NOT an alternative to network information systems like LDAP or NIS. These are still required for networked environments.
