I am interested in knowing the difference and/or advantages
of the ways one can use ldap authentication with sasl.

One way is to use saslauthd -a ldap, which uses the auth_ldap
module for saslauthd.

Another way is to use saslauthd -a pam and then specify ldap
as the auth mechanism in the various pam.d services such as
smtp or imap.
