Hi Dmitri,

First of all, thanks for your quick answer...

Well, my apps are web apps.
By the moment, it's only identity and authentication, but my customer
would like not to close doors by the moment. In the future, it will be
possible to get some stathistics from the data stored in the LDAP's
(geographic criteria, for instance)
So, in this right moment, we are starting thinking is the whole
architecture of the solution, and I would like to use a virtual directory
like Penrose, because I think it would give us some flexibility I don't
want to lack for in the future.
