Because we didn't want to link with Mozilas libldap509.so (which evben
isn't properly SONAMEd) and have a dependency on Mozilla for that.

And that OpenLDAP is LDAP reference. Why use Mozilla if we have that?

If you mean the standalone mozladap: if someone (Mozilla team? I
won't) packages it and it has a proper library etc, yes, we could switch
to that though I still don't see why OpenLDAP is bad.

AFAIR someone tested it with OpenLDAP when I wrote the patch for adding
--with-openldap back then. Might also be wrong remembering, though, never
tried it myself.

I noticed, but I managed to ignore so far because I don't even see the
sense in there.
