You normally don't want to open your addressbook ldap daemon to the general 
internet for security reasons - even with only authenticated binding. Same 
goes for mysql daemon.

A plugin should query the horde contacts API instead and should keep in mind 
that horde itself might be behind some http-auth security measure.

That said, I am not so sure the horde list is the best point to ask for a TB
