Because I want a single place for storing users that all services will
auth against, which also means ssh and so forth. I know that pam_mysql
will bring me most of the way, but I have my doubts about using
nss_mysql (which is also not in Portage). Call me crazy, but I neither
trust the security nor stability of mysql :)
Plus I already have experience with LDAP...
