See also ITS#4033; ldif.h only parses LDIF into chunks/records, it's still up 
to the caller to turn these records into something meaningful. In fact libldif 
used to be a library of its own, but in RE22 we made the decision to merge it 
into liblutil because its functionality is so limited. I don't expect we'll 
reverse this decision unless/until it gets enough parsing added to it to make 
it more generally useful.
