ldapsearch wrapping at 76 chars

Hi all,
in retrieving an attribute value of longer than 76 chars (namely an
automounter map entry) with ldapsearch, we ran into this barrier, which we
now found out is hard coded. Upping the limit  in ldif.h "handled" our
problem, but that probably introduces problems elsewhere, because of going
"off standard", not so ?
1. Any reason to not introduce a switch to toggle wrapping ?
2. Or is there another recognized methods to retrieve the raw attribute
string from the shell ?

TIA and Best
