I didn't open this feature request to ask for somebody to implement it,
I'm simply trying to track a number of items that I'm working on myself.
 Normally I open a bug/feature request in anything I work on in case
somebody else wants to work on the same thing, it helps avoid duplication.

The email thread doesn't fully resolve the issue, it does appear to
require some plugin to be created for the server side, especially if the
LDAP server doesn't keep plain text passwords.  Given the fairly generic
nature of the DIGEST algorithm, I also felt that when implemented, this
code should be contributed to the OpenLDAP repository and not hosted
