That would be great! Thanks!

It tries to fulfill the requirement that no user password should be 
stored in the directory in clear text. Therefore it intercepts the 
modify and the add operation, and if a userPassword value is given in 
plain text by the client, it changes the value of the attribute to a 
hashed value (algorithm is configurable, defaults to MD5).

It was great to see how simple it was to accomplish this task. In fact 
our server is indeed extensible :-)

I hope to revise the documentation in the near future.
