I have written someone on LDAPEXT (Tim Howes to be specific) about such
a change, and this is the response I got (minus some stuff about me
using a deprecated function call in my example :)

So, it looks like this is an issue they are/have looked/ing at. I am
waiting to hear back from Mark Smith. If anyone else thinks this is a
good idea and would like to support the const declaration in the API
draft I would appreciate any petitions there might be out there. I do
think it is the "Right Thing" to do, besides making my life easier :)
