I think that's a good question.  This introduces more asymmetry between
the function of the berk-db2 plugin which does not deal with profile
info as this is not stored in the KDB and the LDAP plugin which has
Novell extensions to read profile data from the Directory.  I would
think that the DAL and plugins would only deal with krb records, not
profile data.
