What other cases are actually interesting?  How much code do we save
if we use libcurl instead of homegrown LDAP-accessing code?  Does
libcurl bring in any secondary dependencies, or have limitations of
its own (thread safety is one obvious point to ask about)?

Depending on an outside library isn't free, so I think the tradeoff
has to be considered carefully.
