Wireshark enhancement proposal for LDAP dissector

Dear samba team,

I came up with the idea to make an enhancement to the LDAP dissector so 
that it dumps a Net::LDAP script (or the equivalent in python if it's 
more interesting) that will allow to replay the request to another server.
This could be useful for checking that a samba4 server is behaving as a 
windows 2003 or 2008 server when you have a well know and non trivial 

I clearly had the need for the IIFP contact exchange with my samba4 
setup, but could it be useful to someone else ?
I'm asking this because this kind of enhancement means quite a lot of 
work so if it's only useful for me I am not sure I'll do it. If I 
clearly know that it will be useful for samba4 project then it worth 
putting time on it ...

Your comments ?
