While the analysis can only be done on Solaris I feel that improvments
from the analysis may be useful on other platforms.  For that I don't
feel it's a waste of resources.

Not all that particular on this one as long as my psql works well. :)  I
do like the improvments in 8.2 too.

Riiigghhhttt...  Only every Windows setup which uses Active Directory,
most major universities, and certain large corporations (uh, AOL?) would
even think to use something like Kerberos!

We use it on some of our production systems (since it can provide
cracklib, password expiration, etc, and the postgres instance inside
it's own vserver so it doesn't hurt as much to make the passwd/shadow
files available to it...).  I'd be happy to help you get it to work if
you'd like, and I could even provide you with some PG/C functions to use
password changing and password aging. :)

Funny you like LDAP but not Kerberos, both of which are part of Active
Directory...  Using LDAP simple binds to AD for authentication is
*quite* silly and *much* less secure than using Kerberos...
