IMO it would be better to just refer to the FAQ index entry:

To the original poster:
While I'm the author of one such tool (and therefore personally biased towards
that) I'd recommend to use your favourite scripting language with a decent LDAP
module to write your own custom tool. With such a solution you have full control
and you can easily make use of any existing data in your organization without
having to setup a big infrastructure.

Ciao, Michael.
