Maybe we should change all the LDAP tools to always return some

The point is: LDAP error codes are integers, while command return codes
for portability __should__ limited to "chars" (o->255) as far as I can
tell (please correct me). I'd prefer LDAP error codes, too (at least the
most "popular" ones, which are well below 255).
Right. 0-255 for exit status.
