Having a way to get user data from hesiod/etc. on the server would be
cool.  Userids should be straightforward (modulo threads and
nonblocking lookups), and I haven't thought about groups.

I would be opposed to having coda get passwords from /etc/password, or
validating passwords against kerberos under any circusmstances,
because coda currently uses xor and that would encourage/require
people to use real passwords in an unsafe manner.  But if one uses
kerberos to get tokens, I don't see a problem.
