Its not on my current priority list, so would you like to take this up?
We don't have the infrustructure to do it for 2.2, but when jmcd gets
the ADS end in, it should not be too hard.
The idea is to always bind as LDAPv3 (currently we don't, I'm told) and
to 'pull' all strings in from UTF8 to 'unix' charset as they come out of
the packet. Likewise to 'push' them into UTF8 as they go to the wire.
