As I really only care about mod_auth_ldap, that's fine by me.

If I cared about any other authentication module, however, I'd want this 
done in a completely general way across all modules.  Why?  So I could 
rely on being able to do this with any/all authentication modules with a 
consistent configuration approach.  Doing this in each module will 
result in only a handful doing it and each doing it differently.

Again, I really only care about LDAP, though, so I'd be happy with 
inconsitency, etc -- as long as it solves the issue for LDAP authentication.
