can pam_ldap write to ldap? excellent! i don't know why that didn't occur to

but i should have worded my question differently. i'm not so much concerned
with replacing those tools since my organization is not ready to get rid of
the standard unix password system. this will be used to handle users of the
mail and web system only. perhaps i'm looking for a wrapper to ldapadd that
looks like adduser.
