Comment (by martin):

My own plan for merging Wiki- and LDAP-logins (a couple of years ago)
envisioned a custom extension to the Wiki login page as the first step,
asking Wiki users to enter their LDAP username after a successful Wiki
The second step included a page to ask LDAP users to enter their Wiki
username after successful LDAP login.\\
Or something along these lines, which would allow to match Wiki and LDAP
logins against each other without manual intervetion.

This never happened because nobody was available and skilled at the same
time to modify the Wiki login page accordingly. Thus, even though this
would have allowed almost fool-proof matching, I have to admit it has
The UserMerge Wiki extension in contrast, while allowing to merge user
logins, requires not only manual action in the process of merging user
logins but also manual verification of the respective identities.\\

Adding LDAP and UserMerge to the Wiki is pretty simple from a *technical*
point of view. Therefore the question boils down to: Which method is
preferred from an *organizational* point of view ?
