In addition to the LEVEL, it may be usefull to also pass the SUBSYS ID to ldap_log and actually include that in the log message. Currently, if a user specifies multiple SUBSYSTEMs and LEVELs, everything gets logged in the same log file. Therefore it makes it somewhat cumbersome to look for (or grep for) messages from a specific SUBSYSTEM in the log file.
