back-shell might work for rough prototyping. back-sock would be more reasonable these
For prototyping a back-sock listener in Python you could give module slapdsock a try:
Personally I use it for OATH-LDAP's bind listeners which seem to work fairly robust
moderate load. But the release 0.5.2 should also work with all other request types.
If you have a non-trivial deployment the sheer amount of log data can cause some
interesting performance issues.
