Yeah, I started poking around with lxr and bonsai and I asked a
Mozilla colleague to help when he gets a chance.

I'm afraid that in addition to any codecs there is always protocol
workflow and so this would turn into a sizable undertaking.

I updated the doco, as with the GSSAPI doc, to have more details and
to use config for ApacheDS 1.5.1.  Also, there is a Start class that
you should be able to run in Eclipse as a Java application and have it
start an embedded Jetty server and bind to 8080.  I think that is the
easiest way to get this example running and skip the WAR deployment.
This is why the POM has the Jetty/Tomcat/nlog4j setup the way it is.
I recommend trying it in Eclipse first.  Don't forget to configure the
JRE to be 1.6 for this specific Eclipse project.  I couldn't figure
out how to get the mvn eclipse plugin to set this automatically and,
trust me, I tried.
