Well, I developed it for web2ldap and some of my commercial projects and 
contributed it to python-ldap.

ldap.async solves some real-word problems for me:
- Stream processing of large result sets (ldap.async.AsyncSearchHandler)
- Grab partial search results (ldap.async.List)
- Write large result sets to file object (ldap.async.FileWriter), e.g. 
produce LDIF with ldap.async.LDIFWriter.

There's also some potential with deriving classes from 
ldap.ldapobject.LDAPObject (mainly SimpleLDAPObject): Automatic fail-over, 
E.g. I'm using ldap.ldapobject.ReconnectLDAPObject in web2ldap to work 
around Domino/LDAP dropping LDAP connections quite frequently.

But I did not make up my mind so far about a really nice and cleanly 
designed class structure.

At the moment I'm the only one...
