I was imagining using LDAP as the ACL for application data, not as a
data store itself, though I suppose it could be used that way, sorry if
I was unclear. I really don't want more things from scratch. I want
glue. Were webmin packaged (or if someone would suggest similar already
packaged administration tools), this'd be easier.

Thanks, I missed httpauth earlier. I saw unixauth, saw that it seemed
like it'd do the trick, and then realized that it wasn't packaged in
Debian, or even in ikiwiki.
Seems like httpauth and mod_authnz_ldap  could do the trick. I
should be able to bang out a simple authentication PoC quickly. I'll
put that on the TODO list, though anyone with the time is welcome to
beat me to it or point to an existing example/tutorial.
