Just curious to hear from the more experienced what they do in their
structure to handle multiple apps, and how sound my thinking is.

To have the same user listed more than once, just because he uses more apps, is against all my believes (and against any directory's as well, I guess): what happens if a user wanted to change their password?

Right now I'm using LDAP for routing inbound email, IMAP authentication, logon on my unix systems and authentication in web apps.
