Haha, I agree! Actually, worse! I will have the plain text password
stored somewhere outside the DS! Let me give you more background:

I think this is an atrociously bad idea. However *everybody* stores
password credentials poorly in puppet. So in order to do it properly,
I've gone to great lengths to support something smarter for
puppet-ipa. Most of the code is already done.

You'll be very pleased to know it doesn't do anything bad! BUT: I am
still going to support the "bad method" of storing the actual password
in puppet. Sad, but still used. So I do need to know how to do this
bad thing, but if you look at my code, you'll see I'm doing something
clever. Once it's all done and tested, I'll blog about it and announce
the technique publicly.

I don't bind. I'm running as root on the free-ipa server.
