Just to clarify, what is it you mean by “a basic Koha+LDAP system”?
Does it or does it not require use of a privileged LDAP user?

To me, “a basic Koha+LDAP system” would be one that uses the basic
LDAP authentication method (i.e. no privileged LDAP user required). But
I don't know if that's what you mean.
