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).
