How about thread-safety only possible with Mozilla SDK?

Hmm, I thought of the following:

SWIG modules for every LDAP C SDK out there which should not be
directly used by an application. The SWIG modules should wrap *all*
functions provided by a C SDK.

Python LDAPObject class as an abstraction layer which hides the
SWIG-ed functions of the C SDK providing an API compatible to recent
python-ldap. For each underlying C SDK there should be a specific
implementation class.

Now the SWIG folks could start wrapping the OpenLDAP 1.2.x, 2.0.x
and Mozilla C SDK without having to provide a nice Python API and I
promise to write Python wrapper classes compatible to recent

This is just an quick idea. Let me know what you all think.

Ciao, Michael.
