LDAP Support?

Geeklog.net I am playing with LDAP for some IMAP stuff I am doing at work. Eventually I will need to have Geeklog and my IMAP server work together so that account creation, password updates and authentication work seemlessly between the two.

For that it seems that using LDAP makes the most sense. Aside from that it would take Geeklog a long way from being a toy for Geeks to a realistic intranet solution for businesses and organizations that already use LDAP.

On the other hand adding LDAP support could break the KISS principle (Keep-it-Simple-Stupid). What are the pros and cons to adding the LDAP authentication to Geeklog? Would you use it or would it be just a waste of time?
