I forgot to mention that there was a brief discussion about this on
Hackers:
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2006-02/msg00828.php

My implementation follows the idea from
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-hackers/2006-02/msg01198.php

I thought it would be good to have some real code as a basis for
further discussion whether this is a desirable feature or not.

I felt somewhat encouraged because PostgreSQL already has a
dependency on OpenLDAP since
http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-patches/2005-12/msg00375.php
and I do not have to introduce a new dependency.

Yours,
Laurenz Albe
