I solved this problem in libsmbclient by adding option_set() and option_get()
functions.  Options are set via this interface, which means that new options
can be added without changing the API.  How the options affect the internals
is not exposed to the user.  For ldb, you'd likely do ldb_init() and then
optionally call something like ldb_option_set("open_mode", 0600)
