this is a very impressive work. The "schema_reload_interval" loadparm 
parameter seems to make sense to me but please consult other LDB devs as 
well. It would always be nice to have such options compatible to Windows 
but I do not know how is it handled in this particular case (I think 
that it could be problematic when we have more than one DC and different 
intervals on the various nodes).
