I just wanted to mention that there are significant integration issues 
of openldap ppolicy overlay in other software.

(We also aren't sure Rob is using OpenLDAP - he hasn't mentioned.)

There are issues with password expiration warnings. See for example: 
Horde integration might provide solutions to the issues.

In many cases, a separate or a supplemental (to ppolicy) password 
management process should be established, like: 
http://tools.ltb-project.org/news/14 (which I haven't used myself). This 
could be expanded and/or tied to a cron-job that would send warnings to 
users etc. based on ldapsearch results.
