I'm hoping to get the LDAP patch completely updated and mostly re-written
for stable 5.5.  We've established some OIDs for this purpose.  You may
want to wait on the LDAP support.  Fortunately, 5.5 supports authentication
modules, rather than compiling them in, so your toaster can easily support
any authentication backend without any changes to the main configuration.

One other thing to keep in mind, is that 5.5 is a development version, and
while I'd love to see more people using it, and thus providing more feedback
about issues, it's worth repeating that it is a development version at this
time.
