The OpenLDAP client supports some kind of string conversions

Personally, I rather not attempt to support additional character set conversions.

And wouldn't it be necessary to have schema knowledge to determine whether the conversion is applicable at all? E.g. if syntax is OctetString the charset conversion might not be the right thing.
