I would consider the ppolicy a nice plus for 2.3, but it's up to you. 
 In any case, I see that there's ppolicy code in libldap, in the client 
tools and in the overlay, so there's plenty of places for potential 
build problems.  What about keeping it as is but wrapped around a sort 
of LDAP_PRERELEASE macro?  Something that by default is not enabled, and 
one may use at own risk, but in a release, not in HEAD.
