Shouldn't that be {SHA}testtest?
I haven't tried submitting a string "{crypt style}password" to
the ldap server, will that have the server use the submitted crypt
style to encrypt 'testtest' aside from the default that the server
was set too?

Or am I confused,, I see Base64 which is a process for SHA hash comparison,
and I see 'crypt', which can be done with regular crypt(2).

I'm tired bleh,,,
