Unlikely... I've never been to a Perl conference.

[OT NB: I've found out that I'm not the only Christopher Schultz in
the world -- even in my own local region. I got pulled-over for
speeding one time and was told that my license had been suspended
*and* revoked (I'm not sure how that's different than just being
revoked, but what the hey). Anyhow, turns out that the state I was
living in used soundex codes for driver's license numbers and another
(apparently evil) Christopher Schultz and I had license numbers
differing only by one digit, so the cop had it all wrong. Fun ride.]

Mirroring AD in UNIX would be foolish. It wouldn't get you anywhere,
anyway, since Tomcat doesn't have a module to authenticate against the
local UNIX environment, anyway.

So you want your clients to provide Kerberos tokens to Tomcat? Have
you arranged for that kind of thing?
