The present release:

* Requires a couple of small patches to build on 10.5 or it doesn't  
support Open Directory users.
* Is best installed on 10.5 with some contributed launchd scripts (the  
SystemStarter mechanism doesn't work at boot time anymore)
* Needs regular restarts in order to keep the schedd alive.

Perhaps "support" isn't the best word for what we're asking, but it  
would be great to find a way to address those issues.
