Describe that idea a bit more, please.

I thought that once the forum users' data were migrated into LDAP space
they may be reused for other applications[1]. Don't know it there are
other sources of users but the forums, if so they could be copied into
the LDAP space too and that way use LDAP space as a common place for
authentications.

Don't know if I grabbed the correct idea ... let me know please.

[1]: The LDAP attributes used here are important, I guess. Maybe rfc2377
could help to define this.
