Just an update about this:

We are just about to hire a new MySQL developer;  If we can just agree
on the terms, he will get the query cache as his first assignment.

To replace the current authentication with LDAP, one would have to
spend at least 3-4 days to recode the current code as a replaceable
module.

It's not hard to get username, passwords and global rights from LDAP.
The problem is handling database, table and column rights in a fast
efficient manner.
