The LDAP support was marked expermimental in Samba 2.2.2. It was offically
declared stable in 2.2.3a, but is not turn on by default.

The LDAP abstraction code was developed & written here at MESD (although
we no longer maintain it). We've been running various versions of it in
production for about a year and a half now and it has been rock solid.
