Yeah, rlm_ldap needs some clean up.

FWIW, I have patches laying around that adds both SASL & Kerberos 
authentication to the LDAP server and adds support for keeping the NAS 
client list in LDAP (much like rlm_sql does).

If I can get some free cycles I'll help cleaning up rlm_ldap and adding 
some new functionality to it.
