I'd describe it as more than experimental :) It's there as much as
anything to test a plugin mechanism for authentication / authorisation -
and that mechanism is itself experimental at the moment :)
Hopefully at some point in the future this will all get merged and then
the LDAP plugin will be a binary download like the others.

That's quite true, slapd is pretty horrible to get started with.

I think we talked about this before. I'm interested to note that it
sounds like you're not so concerned about LDAP itself, as in having a
way to manage large numbers of users / vhosts. Is that fair?
At the moment our plans for authentication / authorisation plugins
involve virtual hosts still residing inside RabbitMQ - only users and
permissions would be external. Would that work for your use case?
