Yes, I thought about that. But we want to "upgrade" our server to SASL
in the near future. So this would mean to install the clients all
again (and the replication server as well, if I can remember it
right). The better way would be to disable it for now and enable it
when the server ist ready to understand it. At least it would be much
less work to distribute a new ldap.conf than to re-install ldap ...

So, is there a chance of disabling SASL without recompiling? (Please
let there be one ...)
