Yes, a worthy goal.  However, it'd be nice to get a version out the
door that compiles/links against 2.0.x and then worry about new
functionality introduced by LDAPv3.

SSL/TLS would be high on my priority list.  I do know how to program
in C but programming isn't my primary duty at work and I don't ever
