I agree to not hard-code config.  I did that to get a cut of SASL in
that passes integration tests.  I also think config in the DIT is a

all config to the DIT?  That would be a sizable project and that's
where my concern is.  Anyway, we seem to agree on getting the config
into Spring XML first.

OK, a bit of a misunderstanding, then.  I thought 1.5.0 was any day
now, in which case a whole new set of features for SASL and Start TLS
would be too late, so I was targeting a 1.5.1.  But, we could hit
1.5.0 with just updating the config and merging the SASL branch.
Also, if the Start TLS grant comes in, I'm sure we can get that in
there, too; pretty easily by the end of March.  Would be a nice
