Re: regarding referral

LDAPv2+ partial results are quite limited by their design
and implementations.   In particular, LDAPv2+ does not
distinguish a referral from a continuation reference.
LDAPv2+ client implementations, in general, will not properly
handle URLs containing "??base" scope specifications.

Extending the LDAPv2 client side implementation offers
no value that couldn't be solved by using LDAPv3.  That is,
existing clients won't use your changes, new clients can
use LDAPv3. (Note: our LDAPv3 client side referral handling
has not yet implemented... but soon, very soon)
