This comes for free in trunk. I'd review a 2.2.x  patch that just
changed the way the loop operates to respect an "AND" flag -- my guess
is that it is not very hard but I am too swamped to play with it

The caveat for the doc would would be that it only made sense in an
all ldap-* configuration.

This AND behavior for LDAP authz is frequently requested.
