Do you suggest that an empty hostport (as ldap_initialize() arg) could mean
that a SRV search is needed ?
But this will reduce the search in the default domain name, won't it ?
So, how to produce a search in another specific domain name when wished ?
Where (in the URI) to appoint the root ("dc=my,dc=domain") or the explicit
domain name ("my.domain") for the search domain ?...

Secondarily, how to specify the present meaning "this LDAP server" if we use
this empty hostport syntaxe for SRV seach ? (A SRV search could respond when
the user think to request his local LDAP server ...)
