Besides LDAP, there's also SOAP / XML thingie :)
All of that is pretty much trivial, and horribly overengineered
(admittedly, not as horribly as X.500 or whatever that kludge was called).
If a method of serializing tree-like data structures and performing
request-reply protocol requires consultants to support, one may safely
assume that there's something seriously wrong. To my ears "LDAP expert"
sounds too much like "operator if-then-else expert".
In any case, there's a bunch of public-domain thingies around which do
LDAP or SOAP, so just pick any.
