Please don't use the ITS to ask software usage (or development trends) 

The syncrepl consumer acts as a client with respect to the producer DSA; 
as a consequence, to be able to perform simple bind, it needs to provide 
the credentials in cleartext.  Either you use a bindmethod different 
from simple (e.g. SASL) which does not require cleartext credentials 
(e.g. GSSAPI) or you'll ever need to provide cleartext credentials.

This ITS will be closed.
