Based on nss_pts, i wrote nss-ptdb which provides some more features:
* fake homedirectory information from ptdb
( homedir= /afs/$cellname/user/$username )
* client-server-based: because of threading-issues, the actual afs-calls
are done by a small local server process. The nss-plugin communicates
with that server process to resolve names.
* debian-packages are available :-)
I've got two AFS-cells using libnss-ptdb exclusively for username-lookup.
