Hi Greg,

there is absolutly nothing that forbid you to use a Ldap server to 
register users on the fly. The only thing you will have to do is to 
delegate the creation of this user to and admin account.

Now, I'm not sure that it fits with what you call 'self-registration'. 
Can you elaborate a little bit more about it ?

Thanks !
