I hate to sound critical, but...

Who's responsible for the "object oriented" interface?  It bugs me when a 
package claims to have an OO interface, yet there's no use of OO concepts in 
the interface.  It took me a while to convince myself that the values returned 
by first_entry and next_entry aren't actually objects on which I would then use 
the get_values method.

I'd rather just use the non-OO interface since it wouldn't mislead me into 
expecting OO behavior.  I assume that still works even though it's no longer 
documented.  Do I just stick "ldap_" on the front of all the method names?

                uptime or reactively pay for downtime?
