OpenLDAP supports LDAPv3 which uses UTF-8 encoded ISO 10646-1 (Unicode).
The first page of ISO 10646-1 contains the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1)
characters, so the transliteration is direct.  One just needs to
encode the character using UTF-8 (a multiple-byte format).

OpenLDAP 2.x provides functions that applications developers can
use to do these conversions.  See <ldap_utf8.h>.
