I read this and understand the point but it's simply not worth the
effort for the 30 user network that I am using it for. It seems odd that
they should still be supplying 2.0.27 with RH AS 3 (2.1.22 on FC-1) but
I have absolutely no inclination to fight that fight to get reasonably
up to date openldap installed on that network.
