- As the person who fought to keep the umich kbind support in
the 2.0 release, I would like to see these features at least
deprecated for 2.1 and removed in 2.2. Or have you moved to
the odd/even scheme of version numbering?

- I fully agree that kbind's time has come, but transitioning
away from it in a graceful manner is a requirement at least at
Stanford. An OpenLDAP release that does not support it is a release
that we can't use for at least a year or two. Please don't
tell me that we have our heads up our asses, I am well aware
that we do. The problem is extracting our heads in some
reasonable fashion.
