Thanks, this actually answers one of the questions I had in my last

It also raises another one however. Essentially I am trying to make a
client that will track changes and do synchronization operations to
other systems when LDAP is updated. In order to do this it's becomming
apparent that I will need to store at least UUIDs and some other data.
Does it matter how I store the UUIDs, whether as 16-octet syncUUIDs or
as entryUUIDs? If the RFC I mentioned in my last e-mail is not correct
as to how to translate the 16 octet syncUUID into an entryUUID would you
mind pointing me somewhere? Perhaps even to a function in the LDAP
