There is no intended ldap-dependency for exauth! My first implementation
used pam. Now mod_vcard_ldap uses ldap (naturally) and it currently 
depends on attribbutes from inetOrgPerson/organizationalPerson. This
should be configurable (patches cheerfully accepted I think :-) ) You
should check the source for details.

If you are using check_pass_null then any user can impersonate any other
user. This is probably not what you want. Where/how do you plan to
authenticate your users?
