Hmm, since this issue is raised quite often how about handle this more
If -D is only appropriate for simple bind the command-line tools could
check whether -D is used and then give a hint that -x is to be used. Or
simply imply simple bind automagically. Same for -U. etc.
Maybe I'm missing something.
Good idea. No one ever suggested it before. Will you submit an ITS?
