I am writing an LDAP client at the moment ;-) I'd like my client to provide a
description of each object class, attribute, attribute type, and possible
allowed lengths.

Talking about lenghts: A few attributes seem to have rather arbitrary lengths
(e.g. cn=32768, description=1024), while others have none.
