Hi Eduardo,

I've been reviewing and testing your patches tonight. There were a few
problems which I have fixed in a test branch in my private tree
(git:// in branch

 - the use of strtok_r to parse the enableOptionalFeature attribute
   was fairly clumsy. I changed it to use strchr() and

 - I fixed the python script scripting/bin/enablerecyclebin so it
   works OK against a local ldb. That makes it easier to test

 - it is important to give sensible ldb error messages when an error
   occurs. For ldb module errors this should be done with
   ldb_asprintf_errstring() not DEBUG(), as you want the error
   transmitted to the client

 - please don't use C++ style comments, use C comments instead (some
   compilers don't accept C++ comments).

 - using strstr() to look for "Recycle Bin Feature" is
   incorrect. Instead you should compare the GUID with the well known
   GUID value.

you were missing a call to ldb_module_done() at the end of

The way ldb modules works is that you must call ldb_module_done() if
you are returning LDB_SUCCESS. If you are returning an error you can
just return the error and skip ldb_module_done()

I've fixed that in the master branch. You also need to change 

    domainControllerFunctionality = DS_DC_FUNCTION_2008

in We should really make that a command line option, but
for your testing you can just edit it.

sounds good!

please have a careful look at my eduardo-recycle-bin-opfeature branch
for ideas on how to improve your code.
