We welcome you onbord the project. :)

We use Kerberized NFS4 for home directory mounting, so that should be in
place already. I believe we are using NFS3 for LTSP mounts of the root
file system, but those are not security sensitive and thus should be ok.

I'm not aware of anyone trying this, but I suspect it would work by
installing libnss-sss and libpam-sss, perhaps in combination with
libpam-mklocaluser, to repliate our roaming workstation profile.

No one is working on Wheezy at the moment. We all focus on getting the
blocking our config packages from entering Wheezy. This need to be
solved first before we can try with Wheezy.

Not really. I've started on a incomplete script to do this, see
/usr/share/debian-edu-config/tools/subnet-change. I hope to get this
completed before we release Squeeze, but have not had time to look at it
