How does RMS work with, for example, a standard JNDI implementation?  What
interfaces, services, features, does it need?  What kind(s) of entries and
JNDI capabilities does it use?  Would it work with Henri's Simple JNDI or an
XML-specified JNDI context such as we use with a WebApp?  From what you've
told me off-list, the answers are yes, but I want to bring this out with
everyone, and start to build a deeper understanding of how this relates with
our Directory technologies.
