no way to get LDAP info with tickets, is there?

Yeah, I just needed the dn (or the uuid field) from LDAP for looking up in
a different db, but I can do it a different way in my setup.  Unfortunately
I don't have bandwidth right now to help out with The Right Solution.  I
would totally use it if it existed, though! :)

I assume this would be the POSIX version of what msft does by attaching a
bunch of stuff to the ticket?

What is the reason for your interest?
If you want some quick results then it is probably not something that
can be done.
If you are interested in making things happen and have an ability to
pass information in the tickets eventually then let us join the forces.
