We do use LDAP for authentication, if you configure it. Now you can use
it without having to change source code and stuff, and its been tidied

Mozilla::LDAP uses the mozilla projects' LDAP libraries. Net::LDAP uses
OpenLDAP. They both talk LDAP, but thats about it for similarities.
Net::LDAP is also maintained, while I don't think anyone is working on
Mozilla::LDAP. Net::LDAP is also standard with most linux installs (and
openldap almost certainly is). The Mozilla::lLDAP stuf isn't.

Maybe s/configuration/libraries/ ?
