free BSD An Approach for Using LDAP as a Network Information Service

It seems to me that netgroups over LDAP is a powerful concept. From my
research into free BSD 6.2 and freeBSD 7.0 it seems that the
/etc/nsswitch.conf does not support the netgroups: database. Is there
any initiative to implement the functionality of the RFC? Is anyone
else using a similar login system?

The only way i see to accomplish anything similar is use the filter
options of nss_ldap and custom attributes to develop your own
workalike nss->ldap
