In the "common" case:

I agree that there should not be a problem.

As I said in my first post, some daemons which are ldap clients may
need to set the LDAP configuration before each LDAP request (or each
group of LDAP requests), as they can't be restarted each time the
configuration is modified.

I'm currently using such a daemon, and the only problems I noticed are
relative to tls_def_ctx, and should all be corrected by my patchs.

I understand if you don't modify the API design just for me, but
perhaps other people/LDAP clients needs to implement such a case.
