So, as well as a normal bind, from say ldapsearch,  you need to do other
things if the bind was correct?

So how would you stop any user/pass binding and an account getting created?

If all you are after is interception, I would advise writting an OpenLDAP
Overlay that captures what you need and does the other things you want.

Overlay are meant to be small and light, exactly what you need.

This will be easier than pulling out code and will get OpenLDAP Overlays
into your head, which is always very handy.
