Ahh.  I had forgotten about that, and you're right, it might be "close
enough", but if it's possible to arrange for unified handling, I'd
really prefer that.

The main problem is that I want a solution that handles all users and
groups, and I want tools like adduser to continue to work correctly.
So far I haven't been able to tell if the behavior of adduser and the
related tools is configurable.  I can see how to authenticate against
other sources via lipam, but not how to re-route modifications.
