I see the fix did not make 2.0.1 ...

After playing around with the 2.0 release for a while I see that it would
be far easier to upgrade from OpenLDAP 1.2 if it was possible to use
ISO-8859-1 and not UTF-8 with clients doing a v2 bind. An option for this
in OpenLDAP 2.0 would be extremely useful. As it is our site uses several
LDAP clients, some of these are likely to stay at LDAP v2 for a long
while, they will just not handle UTF-8 in any reasonable manner.
