libcURL With OpenLDAP

We are investigating using libcurl as a wrapper around OpenLDAP. We would like to use this cross platform (Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Android and Linux). We are able to compile the library and execute simple requests but are now looking into the security and functionality side of the tests.

So far it looks like libcurl uses OpenLDAP with LDAP_SASL_SIMPLE as the authentication type (openldap.c:275). Am I reading this correct in that libcurl does not support other authentication mechanisms (GSSAPI, Digest, MD5, etc.) or is this done via a different way? Is there any plans in the future to add support for these?
