We have run into situations where local users that had been around for years suddenly could not login because there is a matching user in the LDAP directory, and for various reasons we had to give the LDAP directory higher priority.
This is getting pretty far-afield, but don't do this! If you need to
do crazy directory merging stuff, it seems way smarter to set up your

than it does to expect your wiki to be as smart as a full-fledged
It's definitely a bummer that there's no out-of-the box way to switch
from a local auth setup to a directory-based setup.
