This is huge, Corinna!

It must have been a lot of work, and while I personally will not benefit much from this — don’t use AD here, and /etc/passwd suffices for my purposes — it’s one of those things that should obviously be done.

Congratulations on getting this into a shippable state.  I realize it isn’t formally released yet, but you’ve gotten it over the hump where it must be compiled out of release binaries.  I assume this is one of those situations where the last 10% of the work takes 90% of the time.
