Re: ldap_domain2hostlist is for "ldap" service only

Have there been any considerations in providing a similar API for a
service name other than "ldap"? For example, what if I wanted to find
global catalog servers?
If you want a more generic API for services outside the LDAP standards
it's fairly easy to hack something yourself in your favourite
programming language with the help of a decent DNS module.
Even though GCs are Active Directory specific, I
don't see why OpenLDAP would not support that type of query. It seems
like a new API where the service name can be passed in as a parameter
(eg. "gc") would be useful.
It's very proprietary. I'm not even sure whether _gc._tcp was registered
by IANA for that purpose.
