Unless the docs just haven't been updated yet, it looks like it still has
the same JNDI Realm support that it had before. i.e. it uses an admin DN to
log into the LDAP server and then queries the userPassword attribute for the
user and compares the passwords. I'm hoping that the method where it does an
LDAP bind as the user himself will be implemented. I know someone had a
patch that does this. The question is whether or not that patch will be in
4.1 or not.
