Hey there list, Andrew... I keep meaning to have this discussion with Andrew 
and then it always slips by, but this time for sure.

I'll keep this short - my colleagues at Symas want to know what it will take 
to bring OpenLDAP up to date to be usable directly by Samba as a first-class 
recommended option, not just "yeah that should work but..." I've reviewed some 
of the previous discussions on this topic in the archives, but I suspect some 
of those points are now out of date.

I recall that we need to implement LDAP Transaction support, but of course 
that's just one of many missing features. Also, are there developers on the 
Samba team who can spend some time with us to make sure that what we write 
actually fits with how Samba uses things?
