We have deveopped an web interface more flexible ( in Webmin) for administrate the LDAP with the possibility 
to create organization unit and so on. We also extended the ldap object to implement some feature:
- ACL from kolab object to control authorized sender, authorized recipient, revriting outgoing mail,
- to have Aliases (like aliases file)
- administrate rights folder in interface.
- Flexible input schemes ....

if you are interested we can work together
for the moment this interface is only in French but we can translate quckly in english.

Best regards

We highly welcome distributions.

This is definately in our interest to work together!

Most existing documentation can be reached by http://www.kolab.org/documentation.html. Also peek into the old architecture documents to get an idea of the design principles.
There is no plan to integrate the slim web admin interface into Horde (up to my knowledge).

Best is to hook up on the kolab-devel@ list and start asking questions if you miss something.

I would be interesting to know why you think the web admin interface is inflexible. :)
