well, the patches are now a part of my RPM at (Thanks to 
Michael and Konstantin). I haven't been able to get an unpatched version 
to compile either. David has his own tree which he indicated does 
compile against 2.x, but I am unsure if/when that may be added to the 
main tree. Some people like to stick w. 1.x for stability and 
completeness, others just want 2.0. :)

Separately, email me directly. I've been playing around with ZopeLDAP 
and jshell hasn't answered back. Maybe you can clue me in to the status 
of all things LDAP in regards to Zope. (I'm most interested in 
documentation of current ZClass integration, etc)
