Since this will need to be generic, it will need to be able to handle text
returns from data sets (colon-separated fields) as well as binary (e.g.,
an LDAP or SQL backed data set that has binary content in some columns,
such as DER keys).

I'm thinking right now of a Lua function that will return multiple values
or nil depending on whether there was a hit. Does that seem reasonable?
