I suspect that Alexander's intent was just to avoid blocking the gitlab
setup on having some SSO solution in place.

If lemonldap-ng can make use of gitlab's guest data initially, then that
lets the two things be setup independently.

Once lemonldap-ng is shown to do the job, I doubt it will be a big task
to transfer authority for the guest data into lemonldap-ng's control,
and then have gitlab use lemonldap-ng as it's source of that data.

Cheers, Phil.
