[Gnumed-devel] LDAP vs. SQL

It has occurred to me that we need a contacts database for referrals/requests.
Should we:
        a/ use LDAP
        b/ "roll our own" in postgresql, as another service

advantages of ldap:
        - can scale, divisional servers, share with local hospitals, etc.
        - existing standard
        - interoperates with e-mail clients etc. etc.
        - another dependency, server configuration
        - limited features: a simple "flat" addressbook, limited ability to 
group people by location as Richard's contacts widget implies
(Richard, could you elaborate on this)
