I guess in some ways I am doing a unique thing in that I am actually
proxying another real ldap server, and not doing active directory which so
many seem to be doing these days.

You could also use back-ldap together with slapo-rwm rewriting the bind
requests. This would avoid having to set userPassword value and running saslauthd.

Except that back-ldap will forward all requests to the remote server, not just Bind requests.

I've just added in CVS HEAD a simple extension to back-ldap to allow it to be used as an overlay that only forwards Bind requests. Have a look at that...
