I would agree that we need some framework, plugin, or other
mechanism to allow folks to customize approximate matching
behavior to their own particular tastes.  I rather avoid
limiting this (in discussions, design, or code) to
'phonetic'-based approaches.

I'm looking more at your design than your code...  I'll be
commenting on that in due time (aside from being busy, I prefer
to give others an opportunity to comment before I weight in).

It is fine, even appropriate, for you to seek feedback regarding
your design and code before you submit materials for consideration
for inclusion.  However, to be clear, you should be careful to take
comments made prior to submission as feedback and not as some
pre-agreement to incorporate the work in OpenLDAP Software.
