[sudo-workers] sudo+ldap sudo_rootbinddn

Ok, I know that this is a pain but unfortunately ldap configuration/options
sucks sometimes :/ so here's a feature request that would be "sensible" to
implement imho.

We have rootbinddn in the cvs tree, that's nice. However some people might
don't want to use rootbinddn for other apps (for instance I might not want my
passwd to use rootbinddn when using pam_ldap) so can't we have optional 
sudo_rootbinddn for sudo only? (if rootbinddn is there use it, if
sudo_rootbinddn is also there use the latter)

Of course since ldap.secret location can't be specified in ldap.conf (that 
sucks) but can be specified in the code (and it's currently done with
--with-ldap-secret-file flag) in order to prevent conflicts it would be nice
to have a sudo_ldapsecret option as well.

It's a mess I know but imho this is the only way to have any reasonable
configuration supported and share ldap.conf sensibly (otherwise using
/etc/ldap.conf.sudo and not rootbinddn is the way to go).

Bye and thx :)
