Well, most places never achieve real single-signon.  However, since most
things (via PAM) support plain-text kerberos authentication, I'd think it
would make account management a whole lot simpler if everyone only had one

Even for your site, if you switch Outlook for Lotus, and use ADS as your
KDC, you could consolidate user accounts down to just ADS, and even throw
in a little OpenAFS without too much difficulty.
