RE: ITS#8654 - Option for LDAP client to bind to a local address

Will the ITS#4707 patch (ftp://ftp.openldap.org/incoming/openldap-2.3.27-bindaddr.patch.txt) be merged into 2.4?
And since this patch only handles one IP address, further change will be necessary to support a list of IP addresses.

The notes say *a* new API was added to 2.4, not necessarily *this* one. And that is true, we added ldap_init_fd() which lets the caller setup their socket any way they please.
