Come on, we know how it works. We're not pursuing personal satisfaction.
We want to enhance openldap just as much you do. The only point I'm
trying to make is that we may have different points of view on what to
enhance and in what way. This doesn't have to be a problem, but if
(for example) the stock openldap incorporates changes which have a really
bad impact on our data set in terms of performance/db size, then you shouldn't
be surprised if we don't spent much time on enhancing the stock version.

Well, our boss is also willing to support us with this, but it should be
'in balance' with our other duties.

Then please look at our code, because you're making some wrong assumptions
about it.
We've also looked quite closely at your code ;)

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
