I should have stressed this. Openldap supports Postfix with the libldapd
auxprop plugin, not the other way around.

However, the two in concord support SASL binds. At the moment, I
wouldn't know what else to use libldapdb for :)

What I was also trying to stress was, that with Postfix's support of
ldapi, that SASL binds - on localhost, at least - are extraneous and
unnecessary, and avoid tons of unnecessary resources. I'm even using
ldapi for libldapdb, exactly to avoid using those resources.
