queries on ldb

G'day all,

After trying to do some doxygen based API documentation for ldb (for my own 
use, and to be merged if considered appropriate), I've come up with a few 
queries (more technical at the end):
1. How does the GPL'd ldb/include/dlinklist.h affect the otherwise LGPL'd LDB?
2. Is there any reason why the license includes the FSF's old address? Will 
you take a patch to update it?
3. What is ldb_msg_canonicalize meant to do? I see that it sorts the elements 
of an ldb_message, but that surely isn't all. Can someone provide a message 
(or the LDIF that goes into such a message) that will be different after 
ldb_msg_canonicalize? Or an RFC reference that explains it?
4. What is the return value of ldb_search()? The comments in the header and 
source indicate it is supposed to be the number of records returned. However 
tools/ldb*.c show it being tested against LDB_SUCCESS (i.e. 0).
