Some installation systems (I believe SuSE's, but Red Hat's might do it too)
ask the user when installing if he wants to integrate with LDAP and/or NIS
and do all the configuration stuff automagically. Maybe someone with spare
time could look into it and see how much of those configuration tools could be 
reused for Debian (even in d-i, which would be quite nice).
