And your opinion is worth what, exactly?

This code has come a long way since I started working on it in 1998. 
Frankly I had the same opinion then, as you do now. But rather than 
complain, I fixed the problems I found. There are probably still many 
more of course, in corners of the code I have never looked at.

If you think you can do better, prove it - take a copy of UMich LDAP 
3.3, where OpenLDAP started from, and bring it up to date with LDAPv3 
and make it match OpenLDAP's performance and features. I look forward to 
reviewing your result.

Until you do that, you have no basis for your pointless insults.
