In my particular case, my application just binds to a slave server 
and reads datas successfully, but whenever I do an add or a modify, 
or a delete, I want to either have python-ldap rebind to the master 
(as hinted by the slave server it seems) and do the modification 
there instead of on the slave, or receive an exception with its 
arguments containing the master server's url and any other 
interesting information needed to have my own code do another bind 
and the modifications I wanted to do in the first place. 

No sure it is very clear. Summarised it could be : do all reads from 
the slave and all writes to the master.
