It is unclear that this is the case, as the advantage of using the
ptloader format is that you can use a single ldap connection for all of
the cyrus processes, and you get the implicit caching benefits (yes, you
could write an auth_ldap that cached things correctly too).

I do agree that using group schemes doesn't fit the cyrus model that well.
