	Can I just insert in here a question I didnt really get an answer to,
using yet another ldap module in contrib:

        I've just been playing with the C&W ldap xdb module which works
well with 1.4. Unfortunatly my ldap DB has passwords stored as MD5
hashes and so the digest or plaintext method will not work. Is there any
plans to work with this kind of scheme (I dont really see a way roud it
unless you want to abandon the concat with the session key or bind
directly to the ldap server for auth which aint good) or should I just
plan on storing a plain text password specifically for jabber?
