There are not only add/modify operations possible in a LDIF file.

Personally I'm banging my head about adding full support for change records in
python-ldap's LDIF parser. At the end one would have to trigger all LDAP
operations including processing of LDAPv3 extended controls. So I guess for a
C API this would mean a call-back interface full-featured like libldap itself.
(So the next question would be whether to stick with this LDAP C API...)
