Yes, I remember ;-)  My reply was only meant to address the issues Erik
raised.

I just need to look at exactly what this implies for the LDAP protocol.
The change will be simple, but will effect the error structure in a
pretty basic way.

We should also explain this to the list, since I don't think it's really
been brought up here before in detail.

Last but certainly not least, I haven't discussed this with the other
LDAP authors yet, which is a crucial step, needless to say!

PAP, can you post a more detailed description of your algorithm to
the list, and explain in more detail why the change is needed?   -- Tim
