So, the autofs branch is here: https://github.com/trasz/autofs.
Directory services integration is done by external executable,
which is usually a shell script. There is an LDAP example,
at etc/autofs/include_ldap. Script to integrate with other
services (which would be include_nis or include_hesiod) needs
to do the same - retrieve the map named at the command line
and output it to stdout, in a proper format.
