Switching OpenLDAP to use NSS may be painful because of the exposure of the SSL_CTX * in the API via LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_CTX, though I don't know how widely that is used. Would it be less painful to switch from OpenLDAP to the Mozilla LDAP toolkit (now part of the FDS?) at the same time?
I'm the current maintainer of the Mozilla LDAP SDK in Fedora as well as being one of a very small number of upstream maintainers. We (the upstream maintainers and I) will be in the near future investigating NSS support in OpenLDAP. I encourage people to send me comments, questions, and suggestions about how to approach this. If there is enough interest I will create a page at wiki.mozilla.org to track this issue.
