I haven't looked at it closely, but if the ldap and ldap_simple
drivers have separate configuration settings, you could enable both
and manage two accounts that way.

RE: Separate plugin via hook:
The name collision thing still happens because of how password is
currently implemented. My secondary plugin could have copies of all
password's driver files that are identical other than having unique
function names, but that seems messy from a code maintenance

I'll post the other drivers on trac
