I can't see how Open Exchange would care about the underlying library software 
used by OpenLDAP to build its database (on the BDB side of things).

As for LDAP, it is a protocol... If it can speak LDAPv3 to OpenLDAP 2.2, then 
it can speak LDAPv3 to OpenLDAP 2.3, too. ;)  Not to say that they might not 
have some absolutely bizarre patch they want you to apply to OpenLDAP to do 
odd things like NTLM authentication, which is not part of OpenLDAP.  If that 
is the case, then that might need work.  If they are not having you patch 
OpenLDAP, then it should work just fine.
