Hi Kurt,

I've been working on this for the 2.3 release, however there is a problem 
when it comes to ldapmodify.  Pierangelo made the change around controls to 
the ldapmodify code around revision 1.172.  However, when 2.3 was branched 
(after revision 1.175), this new code was excluded by you.  So, the 
question I have now, is should this code now be pulled into 2.3?  It is 
quite a bit of change.
