Personally I don't use Apache modules with LDAP yet, so I couldn't
contribute if I'd have wanted to.

I would guess that it will exist as long as users using things like
Netscape 4.7, Evolution 1.0.x and Exim 4.10 (e.g. me), and your Apache
module (e.g. you) don't start screaming if it's taken out.

I didn't know "env ol_enable_kbind=yes ./configure ..." was possible. It
looks horrible to me. I enable it by putting "allow bind_v2" in
slapd.conf. The day it's taken out (I use Openldap 2.1.4 at the moment)
is the day I stop updating Openldap. Or the other things I mentioned
above will have to be rewritten for LDAPV3. I know that Evolution's done
it for versions 1.1 and 2.x, and that Exim's being adjusted now. Most
sane people don't use Netscape 4.7 seriously any more (I only use it for
testing things). I suppose that Apache will adjust in time.

I wouldn't know, I'm afraid.

I just did my good deed of the day :-)

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
