Cynical question: What is so slow with the current approach? Is it the
fork/exec of perl stuff, or is it the LDAP server? If it's the latter, maybe
it would be better to fix the LDAP server. Maybe just for the vampire you can
run it with a bdb backend tuned towards speed an not safety. I'm sure
DB_CONFIG has a lot to offer to make things fast.
