Ok, then with -lldap_r I could have one global lock for the
functions not using a LDAP session handle and one lock for each of
my LDAPObject instances which hold a single LDAP session handle.

I noticed that ldap_r/ of HEAD contains C sources for all LDAP
operations and REL_ENG_2 does not. What are the plans for
back-porting ldap_r to REL_ENG_2?
