Subject Re: [eve] Integration plans

I think you should stick to the path of making the Kerberos server 
interoperable with OpenLDAP.  This is good in several respects.  We want 
to support OpenLDAP as much as possible as a related open souce LDAP 
server effort.  Hence we want to interoperate with it and those that use 
is already.  Plus several people will want to deploy the Kerberos server 
in a stand alone configuration without Eve in the picture so OpenLDAP is 
an excellent option.

Plus once you've written the JNDI code we should only have to swap the 
JNDI povider, especially since all the schema's and operational 
behaviors will be exactly like that of OpenLDAP.
