I actually think {UNIX} is safer than {CRYPT}.  It doesn't
expose the hash.  In fact, the administrator can disable
write access to the userPassword attribute to self!

Anyways, --disable-crypt turns this and {CRYPT} support off...

Would be nice if the slapd configuration support of userPassword
methods (and server side generation):
  passwordAttribute	userPassword
  passwordAllow	SSHA SMD5 SHA MD5
  passwordGenerate	SSHA

And, of course, a mechanism to completely disable userPassword
support in favor of (working) Kerberos V support.

Contributions welcomed...
