asynchronous event notification?

Hi all, I have a question regarding OpenLDAP and asynchronous events. Does OpenLDAP currently support
any form of event notification? I spent a lot of time
Google'ing and searching the archives of this list
and saw some old discussion from back in 1999 on this
subject, but nothing current.

In case it matters, what I'm seeking is the ability
to receive notification of events such as: adding
an entry, deleting an entry, modifying an entry, etc.
The purpose of this would be for integration with
other software... ex: I add a "user" to OpenLDAP,
and want to programatically update the "user" database
of another application to make it aware of that user, etc.

I see that Novell's JLDAP class library seems to provide
some event notification related classes, but I gather
from the comments in the sample code that this only works
with Novell eDirectory and not OpenLDAP.

If someone could enlighten me on whether or not this
is possible with OpenLDAP, I would be very grateful.

Also, if it's not currently possible, does anyone know
if such a feature is something which is planned / desired / acceptable to the OpenLDAP developers? If it doesn't exist yet, I might be interested in helping add such a thing.
