There is ongoing work (by Grégory Oestreicher) to get feature parity 
between LDAP and SQL - DNSSEC, Master/Slave support, etc. If this ends 
up implementing the whole backend API, then our REST API will become 
supported for LDAP backends and nsedit will suddenly work with LDAP.

With Grégory’s most recent work (git master), pdnsutil edit-zone may 
already work.
