Imho thats very useful!
Some generic plugin or extending C::P::Auth to combine two auth stores, one for authentication and one as source for the roles etc. would be great!

there's already C::A::Store::LDAP to authenticate users against LDAP
servers. This module fetches a user from LDAP and checks his password
(if you told C::A::Credential::Password password_type => self_check).
In most of my apps i don't want to fetch the user from LDAP whereas i
just want to check his password against LDAP. The user, his roles and
preferences are stored in a database. So i use
C::A::Store::DBIx::Class to retrieve a user from the store and a
custom C::A::Credential::LDAP to verify his password.
Maybe this setup is used by someone else too and above all
C::A::Credential::LDAP is useful?
If that's the case i'll put it on CPAN - what do you think?

Thanks for your time,
