Oh good  =D  I have a lot of different responses for pieces of Howard's
message, but this makes it easy to split off this conversation.  ;D  For
one thing, I think that functionality is awesome!  And at some level I
would love to be able to make use of it!  The only reason I don't think I
would end up using it right now is that I do a lot of sanity checks on
what I have.  Basically I create the ldifdiff output, parse it and see how
many mods, deletes, adds, etc are being done, and cap the max number that
can be performed without someone looking over what's going on first.  So
in effect, I'm already doing the work to do the diffs, might as well use
what I have.  That said, I adore the concept and is there any chance it'll
ever end up in openldap's dist?

Oh also, I would actually love to 'play with it' if you wouldn't mind
hooking me up with a copy.  =)
