Thank you very much (to David as well),

I didn't realize I could create my own directory service and it would  
definitely simplify account management a lot.  I just need to figure  
out on my side whether I want the server so tightly coupled to my  
application.  I'm also on a different project to implement a reusable  
Calendar "Resource" and my initial thoughts were that many  
applications would use a single server for all their scheduling  
needs, but I hadn't addressed also using a single directory service,  
which both simplifies and complicates the matter.  I'll think about  

Thanks again,
