To my knowledge no one has released any open source code to do this. In the
past I recommended using back-perl to accomplish this function. In OpenLDAP
2.2 I would write an overlay in conjunction with back-ldap to propagate
OpenLDAP password changes to Windows.

As an alternative, I would consider making all of the LDAP clients use
SASL/GSSAPI to bind to the directory, and just use Kerberos everywhere, thus
eliminating the need to maintain a separate password store for LDAP.
