Well, the reason I put everything marked "deprecated" behind

I that is, I rather have API users make arguments as to why
this or that should not be behind LDAP_DEPRECATED instead of
having API maintainers make arguments as why this or that
should be behind LDAP_DEPRECATED. It should be clear that
maintainers don't like maintaining more than they have to.
I perfectly understand your motivation. But this is a big change!
(I was also curious to how long it would take before some
bitched. Sometimes I wonder how much "real" testing goes
on when requested. :-)
You should have announced this more prominently. It does not only affect the
OpenLDAP project itself.
