For now, I suggest keeping it separate.  The final ruling should likely
come from LDAPext.  That is, we should draft an LDAP C API extension
documenting this interface.  If the extension is optional, I would
think a separate header would be appropriate.  However, LDAPext in the
past has a history of combining independent APIs into a common header.

I think it's best to keep it separate until a draft extension is
published and reviewed.  It's much easy to migrate to users from two
to one than from one to two.

I see little reason to port the schema code to our LDAPv2 tree (1.x).
