Agreed. I have found that LDAP, in the guise of OpenLDAP, is not very 
difficult at all once you have done your first setup, providing, as Craig 
says, you take the time to understand why you're doing what you're doing 
and you properly plan ahead. OpenLDAP also has excellent performance and 
is as solid as a rock.
