Maybe that's the case for SMTP-AUTH, but as far as retrieving aliases is
concerned, Postfix work just fine with LDAP.  The only two complains I
have concerning Postfix LDAP aliases dictionnary is the lack of SSL
support in the (admittedly quite old) version of Postfix I am using, and
the fact that smtpd block (plain hang) when the LDAP servers are not
available (I would prefer it return some 4xx temporary error).

But maybe you where talking about the users repository for SMTP AUTH,
which is an entirely different story.  Sorry for going that much
