Re: const char * params

  so you are saying go ahead and play in my own sandbox, but you don't want those changes in your sources?  Or it is something you are thinking about for the next ver?

  Couldn't this also be done in a non-intrusive way with a #define to optional turn const'ness on and off?

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.
