Can you describe your proposed modifications and their purpose ?
The current interface using the ProfileLocator should be able to address
these issues but we may have forgotten to take into account some scenarios...

Can you elaborate on what you'd like to implement and how you wish to use your
directory ?

I'm not sure I really understand why you would want to re-bind to the LDAP server,
which credentials you would use to bind to the LDAP (if you also use the LDAP
server as the User backend, it's most likely you can't read the stored password
from your application; if you use a SQL database for user storage, why would you
use LDAP for PSML ?)
