[pubcookie-users] Pubcookie LDAP authentication

I am hoping that we should be able to send in the ldap_uri name
(ldap_uri11 or ldap_uri2 etc..) through the pubcookie client just like we
specify the pubcookie appid through apache and let the login server resolve
which ldap_uri to use based on the input from client.
for example, if the pubcookie client sends in ldap_uri1, the login server
checks the config for the corresponding ldap_uri and authenticates with that
uri. The advantage would be to allow few applications to specific set of
users only ( for example, students only or faculty only) based on the LDAP
access controls of the specified bind user.
So, I guess the answer to your question is: *any* one of the LDAP URIs
