Yes.  OpenLDAP-devel implements a number of LDAP URL extensions
(namely for specifying StartTLS and SASL details), including the
one (binddn) detailed in RFC 2255.  I am currently writing an
Internet Draft for submission to the IETF in this area.  It's
my intent for this I-D to be eventually published as standard track

I assume you mean OpenLDAP.... 2.0 will provide support for
a number of URL extensions.

Well, code wise, we have a good start on extensions for TLS
and SASL.  Some work is needed.  I hope someone will flush
out the code once the I-D is published.  I suspect the
code and I-D will leapfrog each other until successful IETF
last call.
