Hash. Follow the LDIF draft, draft-good-ldap-ldif-01.txt. Note that
the draft has a few bugs, incuding one ambiguity for comments:
The precedence of (2) vs (3) below must be specified.

I think that should be `2) Any non-comment line...'.

add `comments may not occur in the middle of a wrapped line',
prepend `After comments have been removed,' to the
sentence `Any line which begins with a single space...'.
In this case, I suggest you renumber points (2) <-> (3).
It will be fixed in the next draft.
