To integrate into MIMEDefang, wrap it into a function you can call
from filter_recipient, and replace the die() calls to:

	return ('TEMPFAIL', "Description of LDAP problem");


	return ('TEMPFAIL', "Unable to bind to LDAP server: $!");

(I'm not sure if "$!" is what's needed; maybe some kind of
$ldap_result->error() thing instead.)
