On an embedded system, there is no "you" (meaning the system administrator)
to fix that kind of problem.  That is one reason why adding any new
complexity in this area is so distressing to me, if at system build time
that complexity cannot be disabled.

On the other hand, as I said before, I'd greatly prefer LDAP to YP for
the NetBSD machines I run for other purposes, and I guess if it replaced
the db files I would not mind too much.
