One option is to upgrade to moin-1.5.4.  If you don't want to do that,
then at least download moin-1.5.4 and take a look at the contents of the
file auth.py (which has an ldap method) and also at the sample
configuration files which are supplied.  You may be able to use that
code in your 1.5.2 setup.

If you have given it a go and are having a specific problem, please
describe it on this list and we'll be able to help.
