Currently the command-line tools require to explicitly use command-line option
-x for a simple bind even when -D <bind-dn> is already given as command-line
argument. This sometimes confuses users.

So I'd like to propose that
1. -x is automagically assumed if -D is given at the command-line and no other
SASL-related arguments like -Y or -U etc. are defined,
2. setting the bind-DN with -D should still be usable when -Y is explicitly

I'm not sure whether this could also be automagically done if -U is given as
command-line argument since still one would have to specify the SASL mech with

Ciao, Michael.
