Most of the work to update OpenLDAP-devel to the IETF LDAPext
C LDAP API internet draft has completed.  I am working on changes
based upon the latest revision of the draft now.

OpenLDAP 1.x will be left RFC1823/U-Mich LDAP 3.3 compatible.

You are more than welcome to experiment with devel code (available
via AnonCVS: http://www.openldap.org/software/repo.html).  However,
do realize that it is not for general use.
