Your opinion is valuable, just like that of anyone.  The code is 
perfectible.  However, to discuss opinions and improvements of code, a 
technical discussion forum is more appropriate that a bug tracking 
system.  I believe that slapd already has provisions to address your 
needs, and pointed you to what I think are the appropriate sources of 
information.  Changing the way software works (and has been working for 
decades) requires a real need and consensus.  Fixing bugs is a 
completely different business.
