At the moment PmWiki's ldap support doesn't really understand
LDAP groups, or spaces in usernames.  But this is probably something
worth fixing, especially if I have a concrete example to work from.

Is there, perhaps, another attribute that we could use besides 
CN to identify people?

(Although I know a lot about LDAP, my knowledge of Active Directory
is very small, so bear with me on this one -- we may have to go
through a few iterations to get everything to work, but it'll be
quite valuable and we can document it well for others who come along
