This breaks a design goal actually. If you check out the Bitfrost pages
(start at: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Bitfrost) you'll see that centralized
stuff is pretty discouraged in the spec, and that would cover the LDAP idea
I think. Additionally LDAP is flaky in a sporadically connected environment.
I don't think putting an LDAP server on the XS is a good idea, to be honest.
