The vast majority of Debian installations don't use LDAP NSS maps, though.
I know that Debian-Edu does heavily, which makes it quite reasonable for
you to want to install it, but I'm not sure it makes sense for Debian as

(Does nscd honor DNS TTLs properly yet?  Last time I looked at it, its DNS
caching was horribly broken, but it's been quite a while.)
