Yes, there are: I have recently done a build of the newer stuff, which 
does need testing. If you're interested, I may send it to you.

It's still python-ldap2.0.0pre04 and OpenLDAP 2.0.23 (with 
cyrus-sasl-1.5.27) due to lack of time on my part to get up to the very 
latest versions.

It does work, but it takes a lot of guessing of what the search roots 
are... and after that, you may have to tweak code to interpret the 
results correctly.
Not as much as Novell Directory Service, though. ;-)
