Darryl, I think -dev or one of the more sepcific lists would be a better 
place to ask your question, -questions is mostly support.

The standard answer though is that people can't focus on one thing all the 
time, I'm very certain somebody is already working on a better pam_ldap 
module, but since FreeBSD is developed by volunteers in what little free 
time they have, these things will take time, unfortunately.

I think Bill Paul answered this question rather well in -current and -net 
earlier, Bill writes:

While that is a slightly different context, the same principle applies, 
things take time. :-)

Perhaps you should submit this as a PR sothat it can be asigned to a group 
of developers.
