default configuration should be updated, since it's currently based on our
(somewhat fishy configuration). From the config found in source:

user-base-dn: 'ou=People,dc=logilab,dc=fr',
user-classes: ('top', 'posixAccount')
user-login-attr: 'uid'
user-attrs-map: {'uid': 'login', 'gecos': 'email'}

* user should have the top and posixAccount schemas
* user login is the 'uid' ldap attributes, and its email the gecos attribute (!).

Please, propose an altenative default configu :)
