I suggest hacking either OpenLDAP or Samba to do away with
redundantly maintained information.  OpenLDAP can fairly
easily be extended to support additional external password
systems (see passwd.c in liblutil).  And, IIRFC, there is
experimental work underway for Samba to use LDAP as a
directory of user information.
