I'm pretty sure that's what Anders proposed, though.  It depends what
you mean by "db" files, though.  I think Anders proposed to get rid of
the actual DB files, using the plain text ones as the backend for the
LDAP server.  The assumption is that in the situations where you do not
wish to run a LDAP server, the plain text files are good enough already,

Correct me if I understood wrongly.
