The derision quotes are appropriate :)
GNOME should *use* directory services. It should NOT define its own,
nor should it have some preferred "integrated" directory service.
Please try to remember that some of us run GNOME on platforms that are
not Linux, and which include their own directory services; and
that enterprise sites generally have directory services in place
already and it is GNOME that will have to adapt to them, not vice versa.
