[Catalyst] new C::P::A::LDAP for new-style C::P::A

Mentioned on irc, but you can drop the Credential portion of this

All you need to do is use the standard Password credential and set
the password_type config option to be 'self_check', and it will do
what you want, actually almost _exactly_ what your code does in
fact.  The check_password() method is called against the user object,
though, not the store.

Beyond that, I have not worked with LDAP in a very long time....  so
the other bits someone else will have to comment on.
