Perhaps because it doesn't provide me with the flexibility I need? I
do a bit more than just snarf the LDAP list(s) straight up...
Scripting it all (or using a nicely convoluted LDAP search
statememnt:-) I can make addresses that really should never be visible
anywhere but our organization... be so:-).
Sure, I could probably do this by beating the windoze guys over the
head a couple of times or three... But that way I'd have to start
looking over my shoulder going down staircases etc...:-D The "old" way
is far better for me;-).

Not to mention that laziness is a virtue...:-D.
