I guess a better question then might be will I run into problem if I run
it like this ?

     If you want to use SASL authentication, you'll have to set it up.

    IMHO, SASL is a worse than useless security system. It stores passwords 
    in cleartext and thinks it is improving security by allowing 
    authentication by passing, in cleartext, the MD5 hash of a password. 
    Unfortunately, SASL managed to get itself into the v3 LDAP spec.

    Either always use the -x or recompile OpenLDAP --without-sasl.

I feel naked outside of Vim.
