Why does it need to be actively maintained? After all, if we're going
to pull it into the base system, we'll have to find someone to
actively maintain the code in the base system. If no one is
maintaining the code externally, that in some ways makes their job

And I didn't say "support", I said "already have plugins". Sure,
anything can be connected to PAM if you can get someone to write the
plugins. Or are you saying there's already an ldap plugin that uses
ldap schemas?
