Well, normally I think you do that with LDAP by adjusting the search
filter that looks up the DN for binding. If you can't express it in a
simple search filter, there may be additional plug points in the vt-ldap
(now ladaptive) code that would let you do this by developing the
extension there rather than having to do a custom login handler.

The author's on the list, he would know and can comment.
