You should request appropriate enhancements from those projects. Support
for SASL Binds has been a mandatory part of LDAPv3 for many ( >5 ) years.
Would be happy to follow the guidelines if this patch could be
considered for inclusion. Do you think this patch is a good feature for
OpenLDAP to have?
No, it's a hack to support obsolete LDAPv2 clients. It has no place in
an LDAPv3 server.
