I would love to see an LDAP+SQL solution that gives us a familiar SQL backend 
with an LDAP client interface.  It might take a little work to make that 
happen, but it might well be worth it.  Many of the solutions we are 
currently using support LDAP, while many of us are more familiar with SQL and 
current Account System services are SQL-enabled.  It seems to me that if we 
don't figure out a solution for LDAP+SQL, we'll end up spending a lot of time 
making different solutions work with the technology we choose.
