Server status is available via cn=monitor, not via files.

If you do, be sure to provide patches so others don't have to
reinvent the wheel.

Not sure what you mean by 'throw out'.

See back-passwd/search.c.

We don't support dynamic configuration... excepting experimental
'aci' in devel codes.

I don't have a list... the big difference between LDAPv2 and LDAPv3
is extensibility (Controls,Extended Operatations,Extended
Search Filters, and SASL).

See the TODO list.
