Bug Description

The way test_backend uses domains leads to either many of the tests being over overridden in test_backend_ldap, or just skipped (leading to a risk that we are not sufficiently testing certain functionality - see bug 1373113 as an example).

There is already a construct for getting the default domain in backend_ldap, but we should use a more flexible scheme for getting test domains so that tests can run whether there is one domain, multiple domains, read-only domains etc.

Is this still an issue?

I think it probably is still any issue, although the sequence is probably something like:

- Clean up current backend_ldap (I'll do this)
- split the test_backend apart (samuel is doing this)
- at this point it will be obvious that a lot of what is in test_backend doesn't need multiple domains, so can use a new test fixture
- those that really do need multiple domains can be refactored

Henry, sounds like a plan, samuel has already split test_backend apart. Looking at there is a lot of room for improvement on how we go about testing things. I'll keep this open until we sufficiently refactor that file

    Refactor test_backend_ldap tests

    Currently, the testing backend for LDAP relies on multiple inheritance
    of many base and testing classes, which results in many of these
    tests being ran multiple times needlessly. This change removes the
    base TestCase unit test class from LDAPIdentity, which is inherited
    by multiple other test classes.
