Um, the whole point of LDAP_TYPE_IS_OPAQUE is that ld_errno is just not there.
i.e. the C header files just don't mention ld_errno, and we can't guess
where it is.

However, I recall that there are other (non-standard) APIs to get to
the error code.. something like ldap_get_error(LDAP *) which we could use.

On Wed, 6 Jun 2001, David Margrave typed thusly:

>     self.ldapconn.modify_s(self.dn, modlist)
> ldap.LDAPError: unknown error (C API does not expose error)
> This was from the latest packaged release (1.10a3 i think)
> Maybe we could make the exception for unknown errors include the numeric
> error code:
>         else {
>                 PyErr_SetString(LDAPexception_class,
>                         "unknown error (C API does not expose error
> %d)", l->ld_errno);
>                 return NULL;
>         }
> #else
> My $.02
