Re: openldap supplanting and working with others

I'd say there are probably several distinct projects here:

- extend the out-of-the-box schema in openldap so it at least
has all the standard LDAP objectclasses.

- extend the out-of-the-box schema in openldap for interop
with other systems such as NDS or mail systems. These of
course would be broken up into distinct objectclasses, and
would need to be accompanied by each-way sync utilities with
other stores (sendmail, dns, nis, whatever).

- extend the out-of-the-box schema in openldap to include
the schemas shipping out-of-the-box in other ldap servers,
to ease switch effort.
