During the bind process is there anyway to tell 389 directory server

I am trying to implement something similar to what's described in this
Our plan was to to use SSHA256 to hash the passwords around 200,000
times before storing. This would at least slow down any cracking
attempts should someone get access to our directory.
I've read through the documentation on the Red Hat Directory Server
site, including the "Plug-in Guide". Under "5.8 Checking Passwords"
refers to calling function "slapi_pw_find_sv()" - looking at the doc
for this function it does not look like hashing multiple times is
Is there some means of doing this that is not obvious to me?
I can certainly do it by re-writing the security plugins for the
various servers (Tomcat, PHP Wordpress, etc) such that they hash the
plaintext password n minus 1 times before issuing the bind - but was
hoping not to do that.
Use of pre-hashed passwords is strongly discouraged and will break
things like sasl and replication.
Does this have anything to do with https://fedorahosted.org/389/ticket/397?
I'm relatively new to 389 directory server, but so far quite happy to
have moved to it from another directory server.
Thank you - Richard
