authenticates a user against our ldap server.: User types in name and
password, and module sees if name and password check out right with the
I see that it's pretty straightforward to do this with:
l = ldap.open('our.ldap.server')
l.bind_s(username, password, ldap.AUTH_SIMPLE)
authenticated = True
authenticated = False
