Single practice, 1-3 doctors, 2-5 machines. Do you really want
the make them run yet another demon ?

I have never really understood the key benefits of LDAP over
other forms of storage. Can someone point me towards one or
two good papers online ? I mean, outside the scope of
"directory" as in phone book since that seems to be what it's
tailored too.

All the client needs to do currently is to do a config file
lookup to know the IP/port of the config database. Where's the
big difference ? This is a site-local issue and should be
solved local to the site, IMHO (for local LDAP see above).
