I assume it means that to use LDAP you would have to write your own 
login module.  This is no longer true.  M5 (and head) now include an 
LDAP LoginModule

However, this is currently in the wrong source directory

I'll fix it in head but it's too late for M5.  It will work fine anyway.

We also include the Apache Directory server, so you can have pure java 
geronimo-embedded LDAP as well as connecting to external LDAP systems.

If you need help with ldap configuration, you will have to get someone 
else: this is the limit of my ldap knowledge.
