- Are you re-engineering the back end interface? It seems to
me that sasl is pretty hard to do unless you move it up a
layer. What backend should I be looking at for the cyrus
stuff? I looked at the code in slapd/bind.c and slapd/sasl.c and it
looks like the backend bind doesn't really have to do anything
other than map the sasl identity to the corresponding DN.
- Are you going to support encryption for those sasl methods
that have it?

- I've run into a work project that would be ideally implemented
as an ldap backend, but it does require sasl authentication and
encryption of the data stream( either sasl or TLS ) for the server and
of course appropriate support in the client libraries.
How close is this to being possible? What would be a good
