I'd thought of that too.  The clients are mostly OS9, only 2 out of 20
are OSX boxes.  I hope there is a Net::LDAP for MacPerl.

Only issue I don't know about is that I have to sync both ways, and I
wonder about changing the files out from under Mozilla when the client
is open.  

This is a pretty low budget non-profit client, but I like them and
thought figuring this out could be useful for other jobs.  But if
it becomes a huge amount of work, I won't have time to do it.  Adding a
useful piece to the Mozilla project seems more worthwhile to me.
