Err, actually, i meant using LDAP as the _base_ of the whole service.

If one wanted to layer corba ontop of that afterwards, it would be a
cinch and more generally useful (the corba services not being so
closely tied to gnome).

Remember, things like netscape already support ldap directories
natively, and the api is pretty simple.
