Having had experience dealing with OpenLDAP, I'd be happy to have
just /anything/ else.

That being said, there's nothing wrong with having multiple
implementations of the same thing -- on the contrary. We have multiple
implementations of DNS-servers, MTA's, MUA's, database servers,
browsers, user environments, and whatnot. Why not multiple LDAP servers?

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
