OpenLDAP 1.x implements LDAPv2+ (RFC 1777 + U-Mich enhancements),
LDAPv3 (RFC 2251).  OpenLDAP 2.0 will support LDAPv3.  Our
current development code supports the features included in
your patch.  (Checkout OpenLDAP-devel... available via AnonCVS).

Clients should not send LDAPv3isms in LDAPv2 requests.  Your
patch is to workaround a bug in Netscape Communicator client.
