Don't believe it.

The fall of '06, my manager and the other admin and I were discussing what
to use for single sign-on. NIS has way too many holes, and no one was wild
about NIS+, so, though none of us had dealt with it before, I though LDAP
was the wave o' the future, and offered to implement it. A month or so
later, and *lots* of grief and hair tearing (and I ain't got none to
spare), I got it in. openLDAP's docs were *way* insufficient, and the
tools that come with it are *not* ready for prime time, and user-surly, to
say the least.

It works, though.
