well AD *is* LDAP but it has many other services/requirements beyond
LDAP.

As for OpenLDAP being a royal PITA, I suppose that's a matter of
perspective because I've been using it for at least 7 years now and it
works for me without any problems whatsoever. The only griping I hear is
from people who expect to use it without actually taking the time to
learn how it works.
