I understand completely.  I write software myself and only admin my
network enough to support my software development.  I have a small
number of users but a large number of machines hence why I use ldaps.

I dont want to support years old releases of my own software.
However, I dont radically change my config file formats either :)

Thanks!!  I'm going to tackle the conversion after I get this new
system in place.
