hi everyone,

i had no idea that this ever worked, but apparently (i verified it with 
python-ldap 1.10alpha3) ldap.open used to accept a hostname string as 
argument with more than one LDAP host, separated by whitespace. this 
worked in a failover fashion where if one became unavailable the next one 
would be used to execute queries.

i am noticing that this no longer works on 2.0. is this (now that i know 
about it...) useful feature going to be available again at some point? 
(either in ldap.open or through ldap.initialize)
