I was wondering if there is any interest in making it possible to allow 
self registration with LDAP authentication? It seems that LDAP 
authentication is used in a more restrictive environments, where you 
have to talk to a sysadmin to get your IM account set up. I would like 
to use LDAP to authenticate clients that use our Jabber Server and other 
resources that I have set up, a wiki for example. If self registration 
was allowed users could register for the Jabber Server and use the same 
username and  password for a wiki any other resource that can use LDAP 
for authentication. Does anyone else think
this would be useful?

What are people's thoughts on this?
