We were contacted Monday afternoon by kos@bastard.net with a suggested patch
for running OpenLDAP as a non-root user while also allowing specifying the
gid and IP address to bind to.  An alternative implementation is available at
the referenced URL.  We're looking at running slapd as a non-root user by
default for the next release, and this may be how we end up doing that.
