Hi Nick,

As nice as it would be to have unlimited development resources,
that is never the case. Since no community member has stepped
up to work on the LDAP backend and PowerDNS.com does not have
funds to work on the LDAP backend, it is better to go ahead and
mark them as closed/wontfix. If an enterprising LDAP developer
ever appears, they can find them all and work on them and fix
them just as easily as if they were "open". Other than bug
reports, there has been no ground-swell of LDAP support either
with development time or funds. That is pretty indicative of
its relative importance compared to the more traditional SQL,
Bind and pipe backends.
