Delayed until next weekend. Thinking once again about it I came to the 
conclusion that the best solution would be to introduce some kind of admin 
addressbook that wraps glibc, *dms face system, nss ldap etc. using backends 
for the different setups.

Such an approach would also apiwise prepare the support for remote admin 
addressbooks, to look up remote users if doable (access to LDAP, shell, 
fingerd, ...) e.g. when browsing remote shares of another system.

Hey, am I really the only one interested in that? Can't believe it :)

Comments, please!
