[ejabberd] Re strict LDAP Attributes?

Using LDAP for authentification, ejabberd 2.0.1 generally attempts to
retrieve all attributes for a specific user. I'd like to restrict this to a
certain small set, such as [uid, sn, disabled, securityEquals].
Reason: It's not exactly useful retrieving all attributes for 6000 users (as
in inevitable LDAP timeout).

Does such functionality exist?
>From looking at the code, i'd suspect the ldap_dn_filter option in the
configuration file to be capable of this, however i'm unsure of the syntax
to be used.

Alternatively, a similar effect can presumably be reached by pre-setting the
SortedDNAttribs variable in ejabberd_auth_ldap.erl, however i'd prefer not
to hardcode this.
