We use NIS and the compat module here at the University of Oslo on
most of our 2000 unix machines, so I can assure you that it is in
active use and not obsolete at all. :)

If only LDAP had client side server failover like NIS.  It would make
it easier to switch to LDAP for us.  We would still need the compat
mechanism to control machine access.
