ldapweb.cgi needs some usability improvements
The login system currently used by Metacat for the registry is ldapweb.cgi, which communicates with the LDAP server to authenticate users. There are a few issues which should be improved:
- heavy use of tokens, should probably read config options as per Chris Barteau's work to remove tokens where possible.
- The 'resetpass' stage isn't useful; it contains help text for LTER scientists but is neither skin-dependent nor provides guidance for other LDAP authorities.

- Status changed from New to Rejected
Actually, login is handled by the registry, not ldapweb.cgi. Redirects would be nice, but it is possible to "trick" it using Metacat skins. The other things on this ticket have been addressed, I believe.
