	Man. You need to let let *go* of that pipe. You've been
	puffing a bit too much.

	I'd really appreciate it if Twisted would contain bad naming
	puns in the edges and things only used by Twisted developers,
	but not in the core facilities. I've already had trouble
	selling it due to the "twisted" name :)

	Sooo.. what does ActiveDirectory need to check a users
	passphrase? If it's anywhere near what basic LDAP usage is,
	I'm already your friend.

	(And no, I will not look for myself. I can smell it already,
	I'm not going closer without bribery.)

	For those readers, who don't have a clue what I'm talking about:

	Ldaptor is a pure-python LDAP library, utilities and

	apt-get install ldaptor-utils ldaptor-webui

	It contains a fully-featured LDAP client library, a just-added
NEW-->	initial LDAP server support, a web server that allows users to
	browse/edit LDAP content, and a set of command line tools for
	e.g. doing LDAP searches, changing passwords, etc.

	Also a lot of infrastructure exists: Ldaptor groks Samba LDAP
	entries, DNS SRV, etc.
