the reason for using the drop-in schema is, simply, that that's the
'closest' to the instructions @ mit-kerberos' docs, though for

it turns out that there there _are_ some problems with the openDS
parser -- filed as a bug, and being worked on -- that cause _both to
choke.  that, of course, needs to be fixed 1st.

you're correct in that either/both _should_ work.

thanks for clarifying.  the openDS parse fix may smooth things out.
if not, i'll follow up here.  in either case, i'll drop a note back
here just fyi ...

thanks again.
