Automatically imply -x in case of -D (was: Newbie question ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Invalid credentials (49))

Hmm, since this issue is raised quite often how about handle this more

If -D is only appropriate for simple bind the command-line tools could
check whether -D is used and then give a hint that -x is to be used. Or
simply imply simple bind automagically. Same for -U. etc.

Maybe I'm missing something.
