I agree, assuming openldap version 1 will live on for a while yet (to
get serious bug fixes).  Just leave an openldap-2/servers/ldapd/README
which refers to openldap-1.

Even if someone wants to resurrect it and insert LDAPv3 support, it
might be easier to write an X.500 backend to slapd.

No, it relies on some #includes and data structures that originated in
quipu, but live on in ISODE (now MessagingDirect) and several other
X.500 implementations.
