> I'm a little confused; what would this SQL statement accomplish?

Scenario: You have a Geeklog instance that is "mature" using standard
Geeklog 1.4.1 authentication (Geeklog auth) you want to migrate to an
LDAP based authentication. You migrate all your Geeklog usernames to
the LDAP repository, and want to change the local accounts you already
had to be associated with those accounts.

The SQL Statement would update the local account to make it
authenticate via LDAP.

Previously the THEMike account would have logged in using
gl_users.username and gl_users.password. Now it will authenticate out
against LDAP and no longer be a pure local account, but all my
submissions, posts, comments, permissions etc will still be associated
with it
