You still need some way to "play back" these results -- this
functionality isn't built into Net::LDAP, and thus is where the
difficulty arises.

However, it's almost worth it to make a small dummy LDAP server, start
that, then run the tests.  Still, that's kind of a specific solution,
rather than a decent Good::Enough::For::CPAN general solution :)
