Ok got it. I've change it a bit and applied it.

The best idea I can think of (is it english ?) is to verify that
LdapServer and EmailCompletionLdapServer are the same and if not,
don't fallback to LdapUser/LdapPass. I will do that way for the
moment. If you have a better idea, let me know.

I will keep the fallback for EmailCompletionBase and
EmailCompletionFilter because it seems good for those two.

Quite easy, LDAP emails now have light grey background. If you have a
better idea or a better color, let me know.

By the way, thanks for the patch and for your help.
