We're getting some hosting sorted for it here at Cardiff this week. It'll
take me another week or so to remove any domain-specific stuff, publish and
document it. After that I'll link to it on the Wiki.

Great.  Even better if you have some screenshots or a screen movie which
shows it in action.  :)

Sounds very interesting.  We have now three ways to do this (after 1.5 /
1.5.1 / 1.6) is released:

1. Hooks
2. Change log
3. ldappc ng

Maybe we should publish a wiki page with the pro's / con's of each approach
with examples (including yours).

We should definitely link at lease from the contrib. page (can you request
access from Steve Olshanky steveo AT internet2 DOT edu).  Tom Barton
probably has better information architecture ideas about where things
should live.  :)
