ldap_simple_bind provides a real implementation of the LDAP
BIND operation that is async in terms of the client/server
protocol interactions.  That is, the client call doesn't
wait for the server response to be returned.

Implementing other forms of async would be enhancement.
I suggest starting a discussion on the devel mailing list.
Providing a clear and consise description of how you'd like
the API to behave would be good place to start.

Basically, you need to help people help you.  This is
best done by initiating & partipating in devel list
discussions.  You must be subscribed to post.

They both "work fine" if they are used in the manner in
which they were designed to be used in.
