Hi Steve,

I may not be the good person for W$ LDAP, but I've looked at the openldap backend and I really would like to implement SASL authentication via our SASL procedures.

Unfortunately, this requires implementing a "binary mode" in the sasl module. I already started it, but it is stalled yet since I'm very busy.

I have no particular opinion about the curl tool options. But does it make sense to have option --digest for a non-HTTP protocol ?
