I started work on an ACAP slave (see kdenonbeta/acap) which is a dedicated 
configuration protocol.  However I discovered that there is no maintained 
open source server implementation (that I could find), plus I couldn't think 
of very many benefits over nfs-mounted home dirs, so I haven't completed it.

I could be convinced to finish it if this really fills a need... but writing a 
server is a bit more effort (and maintaining the cyrus one is unlikely to be 
a pleasant task).  Would the kiosk project benefit from this? (the protocol 
has ACLs).
