I haven't added it to my TODO (never thought of it :) and I don't
even know if it's possible.

But add a report on (project bind9-ldap),
and I'll have a look at it when I get some time over...

If you can supply a patch, even better! :)

In my opinion, that's not bind9-ldap's fault, it's the administrators :)
But i get your point. If someone wants to do this (and it's possbile),
I want the cache to be used _only_ if the LDAP server(s) can't be reached
for X attempts...
