Yes, I guess that this works pretty well when you deploy OpenLDAP
(or basically any other software) at a single customer. It gets
harder when you ship OpenLDAP as a part of a product,
I already imagined what your aim is. ;-)
Of course my aim is somewhat focused on what I am getting paid for, whose isn't? :)

Yes, this was not meant as offense.

But additionally to that I was trying to find out if there is a general interest among the OpenLDAP Developers to have some kind of management tools/api.

I consider the LDAP C API to be inspired by what is sent/received over the wire. I'd expect such a higher-level management API to be inspired by certain management use-cases. So which use-cases do you have in mind?

Ciao, Michael.
