I think it is very easy to rewrite the current compat NSS module
to support every service, for which a NSS module exists. We don't
need LDAP support in glibc for this, instead the compat module would
load the corresponding NSS module. This would also avoid some
duplicate code.

I will look at this next week and write such a module. After this
we can discuss again, if we whish to replace the glibc version or
make an alternative NSS module from it.
