I have been using Openldap with ACI,s enabled for quite a while. Is
their some reason the configure option shows it as experimental still?

With OpenLDAP 2.3, it will be possible to replace all your *.conf files with the new back-config DB. This will allow ACL's to be modified on the fly, and remove the need for ACI's at all. ACL's are somewhat more powerful than ACI's, so I myself see little reason for them to even remain once OL 2.3 is released.

I'd agree there is probably no need for ACI support to be included in 2.4, but I would think stripping them out of 2.3 a little extreme.
