Indeed, but unfortunately our esteemed security group bases their security 
standards on the CIS benchmarks (usually their changes reduce the technical 
quality at the expense of formatting etc.), so I suspect at some stage I'll 
be getting questions about an OpenLDAP standard (and I'll probably have to 
fix it up more than I have the Linux one ...).
