I think I may end up just storing a name+password on workstations that
need any kind of search access to the directory. But if I can get
authz-regexp working I may not need to store passwords on anything.

I'm having a lot of trouble just getting just a basic regexp example
working though.
I dont have any kind of slapd.conf set up, so I'm injecting the
updates through ldapmodify. Here's what I've tried :
#ldapmodify -Y EXTERNAL -H ldapi:///
SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
SASL username: gidNumber=0+uidNumber=0,cn=peercred,cn=external,cn=auth
dn: cn=config
add: olcAuthzRegexp
olcAuthzRegexp: uid=jrambo,ou=users,dc=example,dc=com

modifying entry "cn=config"

#ldapsearch -x -H "ldap://voss.worleyco.com/"; -b "dc=worleyco,dc=com"
-D "uid=jrambo,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com" -W
Enter LDAP Password:
ldap_bind: Invalid credentials (49)

I'm assuming that with the above instruction, requests to bind with
uid=jrambo,ou=users,dc=example,dc=com should translate to
uid=jrambo,ou=it,ou=users,dc=example,dc=com, but it doesnt appear to
be working for me. Am I missing something simple? I've restarted
slapd, verify that the object exists, credentials are valid, etc.

# rambo, IT, Users, example.com
dn: uid=jrambo,ou=IT,ou=Users,dc=example,dc=com
uid: jrambo
objectClass: account
objectClass: posixAccount
cn: jrambo
loginShell: /bin/bash
homeDirectory: /home/jrambo
uidNumber: 10000
gidNumber: 548
