Take in account that after the "hard coding" part,
there will be a "soft skills" part,
where people have to accept the proposed alternative.
For a smooth swith-over are most likely changes in "top Debian-edu"
needed, like selecting which domain name server has to be used.
And probably also selecting which back-end ( files or LDAP )
The way to achieve it is to use separate parts, also known as modules.
Hoping this help (at least it should avoid stress)
