While I agree that SIGIO-based async I/O in Unix sucks, that's
wasn't what I was referring to.

The "async LDAP API" refers to LDAP API calls which separate
request sending from response gathering (e.g. ldap_search(3) and
ldap_result(3)).  Calls in the API which both send a request and
gather its responses (e.g. ldap_search_s(3)) are referred to as
being synchronous.
