Software Enhancement request:

It would be great if openLDAP had the ability to store userpassword in a secure
format automatically.  Make it something that is configurable via the
file.  Something like Netscape's password storage scheme setting.  Then any
password that is committed to the directory is automagically converted to the 
secure format for storage.  Then users could use the standard ldapmodify to
change their passwords without having to know the syntax of another program
(ldappasswd).  It would seem like a fairly easy task to integrate the code
from ldappasswd into the backend database code.
