My 2ct on transactions: Either you bundle a larger operation that
requires multiple steps into a single extended operation and execute
that in the ldap server under a transaction. Or -- over ldapi just
*do* transactions like we do them now with ldb. It's ldapi, we can
check for root. Why can't we just block and unblock the ldb in an
exop? Functionally, that should not make a difference. Also, you have
a better way to kill a rogue client after a minute or so if it does
not finish its transaction in that time frame.
