Unix authentication trickery.

I'm pretty new to LDAP, but I just want to know this before I dive right in
and discover that I can't do it. Currently, I've got multiple usernames on
any given server that I administer using the same UID. I know, I know, this
is a dirty thing to do, but for our purposes, it's meant that multiple
separate login names work fine, and they all have user level access
permissions to a group of files. Now, if I implement LDAP based unix
authentication, can I still specify duplicate UID's, and have it all work
neatly? If I can't im going to have to do some serious rethinking. I really
want to avoid groups, as there's a LOT of them, and mostly there's only 2 or
3 of the same UID.
