comment Lion server - networked logins?
Agreed, you make a very good point. Server|Client relationships in regards to small office situations are not always a good fit and I think a "heads up" should be appreciated.

comment Lion server - networked logins?
I agree with your points in that there may be drawbacks. I have moved away from mobile syncing, and have done much the same as you have described above in regards to regular admin users. Aside from standard clients (students) who are managed for specific restrictions I generally leave management of users alone. However there are certainly huge advantages in at least binding the machine to LDAP and having the users "known" by the server. :–) Also, mcx management/local mcx management is quite helpful if you have a need, and no other way of systematically managing by specific groupings.

Unfortunately the following answer is not yet tested as I do not currently have access to test it. If it does not work as expected I will remove or edit my post accordingly. It has been awhile since I used mobile account with WGM.

Do you ever intend on .avi or .mkv files to be synced regardless of the directory?

Adding the Screen Saver to Hot Corners is very handy and you did a very good job explaining how to set them up and apply them. :–)
