Are you sure you did not commit anything? The current CVS builds
against OpenLDAP 2.0. Unfortunately this breaks some important code
in web2ldap since I can't set options anymore.

Can we first make a release which definitely can be built against
OpenLDAP 1.2.12? I have troubles building python-ldap from CVS
against 1.2.12. configure fails on ldap_open check.

After making a cleanly working release there should be a CVS branch
made instead of just silently dropping support for 1.2.x.

Ciao, Michael.
