Supposedly not.

  It will.  At some point, I'll make a sourceforge-ldap-remote
package, allowing you to use a remote LDAP server.

  Not sure.  The problem is that we want to have the same data in the
SF database and in the LDAP directory.  The (current) solution is to
have one authoritative source for the information, and that is the SF
database (in PostgreSQL).  Changing that system would be rather hard
to do, since it would require mechanisms for synchronisation and
conflicts management (not to mention race conditions and the like).
