Things like nss_ldap (which is used *heavily* at my place of employment)
are some reasons that FreeBSD doesn't make it into more places. It was
the reason why FreeBSD isn't being used here. Calling them 'tricks'
(and succumbing to the name calling you wanted to avoid) doesn't change
the fact that every major contender (IRIX, Solaris, Linux to name a few)
all support this feature set.
