It would be nice to have, but is it good to have a library dependency for
all other users of emacs who doesn't want or need LDAP?
I find it concerning that many variants of many packages are
cluttering up th packages list. With that in mind I have to consider it
more prudent to:
1) keep the package as 'slim' as possible (i.e. no LDAP dependency)
2) put a ccouple of comments in the appropriate debian/* files to let
people apt-get source them and rebuild with the extra options they
want/need more easily.
p.s. I'd like to have it myself, but I'd rather recompile the package
myself than lumber everyone else with LDAP just because they want to use
