I hoped that someone bites the bullet and uses
/usr/lib/python2.2/profile.py... ;-)

Also the __init__() methods of the schema element classes need 
review to check whether they are consistent.

This is rather simple:


Be warned that the API still might be changed without prominent
notification (there are some significant changes in the pipe not 
checked in). I developed the stuff while implementing schema 
support in web2ldap. Therefore it should contain almost everything 
needed by applications.

Also be warned that there are many broken schemas out there in the 
wild. Test your application against other products than OpenLDAP!

Ciao, Michael.
