Thanks for providing this. I was going to look into Go at some point so
this may be a goot starter.

You can compile nss-pam-ldapd with the --with-module-name option to use
a different name so you could easily build NSS
and PAM modules. Using --with-nslcd-socket you could even
have both the "normal" nslcd running and a custom one.

If there is anything that can be improved to nss-pam-ldapd to make that
use case more easy, please let me know. I have heard of at least a few
cases where this is done.
