Re: commit: ldap/servers/slapd/back-perl SampleLDAP.pm
The new backend is not 100% compatible to the old backend
due to the lack of data sharing. This is a complex issue
but maybe solvable with the help of the mod_perl code.
Everyone I'd seen using back-perl was using private patches that were
completely incompatible anyway. ...And most were abandoned some time
during the 2.1.x era.
The single-threaded nature of the existing back-perl makes it mostly
useless in the modern slapds with overlays, so anything that fixes
this is a huge improvement.
But if we're changing APIs... please consider a more callback
oriented system, at least for the search operation. Last I looked at
it, lots of time was wasted allocating and deallocating memory for
the search op return value. Returning one object at a time with a
separate call from perl back into slapd was a huge performance win.
