No, at a first glance it's not going to have any impact on that portion 
of code.  I'll try to sort out if and how anything similar can be done 
in that area.

There's no definite timeframe.  It's not going to appear in OpenLDAP 
2.3, since it's feature frozen and this does not represent a significant 
bug fix, but rather a new, marginal feature.  2.4 is on its way, and 
this code will surely be in the next 2.4 release.  Whether this will be 
still alpha or release, I have no idea right now.
