While 2.0 provides an experimental -lldap_r. It is not generally
thread-safe, but thread-safe if used in a specific manner. As
use of -lldap_r requires detailed knowledge of how the library
works, I do not recommend developers attempt to make use of it.
You might consider using the Mozilla LDAP C API which has more
general thread-safety features.
Of course, we welcome those wanting to work on the OpenLDAP C
API to improve its thread-safety features.
