It's not what I believe or not, personally I couldn't care less, as long
as everything works as it should, for both clients and servers.

And the acid test of whether it works or not is, that both server and
multiple clients work with newlines. Whereas for Peter Lavender and $
chars, they do not.

Someone sort that out, please?

And a lot more besides, obviously (see the posts about ACIs and jpegs):

# jpegPhoto
# Used to store one or more images of a person using the JPEG File
# Interchange Format [JFIF].
# Note that the jpegPhoto attribute type was defined for use in the
# Internet X.500 pilots but no referencable definition for it could be
# located.
attributetype ( 0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.60
        NAME 'jpegPhoto'
        DESC 'RFC2798: a JPEG image'
        SYNTAX )

It does *not* store "or more" images, it stores just one, since there's

I've no doubt that eDirectory / NLDAP *does* do as prescribed.
