Well, this entire thing might just be that no all people interested in
the LDAP backend are actively following the mailing list (like myself :-)
However, we are using the LDAP backend as well for our couple of
PowerDNS servers and would suffer much from dropping LDAP support.
On the other hand, I perfectly understand Bert's POV on the issue, so I
what I can offer is taking a look on the open issues and maybe - if time
allows - putting some manpower to it, but I will first have a look at
the issues myself.
