to keep the same set of unit tests running as are used for the SQL backend.
  The one delta is  Metadata, as I am not sure how (or even if) we want to
reflect that in LDAP.  I've made those three unit tests no-ops for LDAP.

There are still more API calls to implement, (Tenant_Modify for example) and
then I'll test out against a live Open LDAP  instance.

The one change I've made from the old config is that fields like URL  no
longer have ldap_  in front of them,  so the config will look something like

url = ldap://localhost
user = cn=Admin
password = password
backend_entities = ['Tenant', 'User', 'UserRoleAssociation', 'Role']
suffix ='cn=example,cn=com'

Feedback requested.

Looking through the code, it appears that using ldaps:// may work for
LDAPS support, but is LDAP w/ TLS going to be supported as well? Have
you tested LDAPS support?

Not yet. Thus far, I've only tested doing a simple bind to the OpenLDAP server. I'm not sure about the rules of using TLS or other Cryptographic approaches with Eventlet: I suspect that to do something like TLS would require a thread pool. I'm mostly focused on getting parity between the Keystone current and Redux code bases. Something more than that would probably be post E4 time frame.
