LDAP_X_* codes and negative codes are experimental or private to
OpenLDAP. These may be replaced or become obsolete.
Most or all other result codes in ldap.h are standardized in some RFC,
and will not change. In particular, most of the range 0-80 (0x50) are
from from RFC 4511 Appendix A.
We should comment in ldap.h which codes comes from where. I'll file an
ITS for that.
