I beg to differ : I'd prefer my program to ignore the LDAP 
architecture of the particular site, since it must work on
many different ones.

I just want my software to deal with a single LDAP server at any 
time, and if for a particular operation python-ldap receives 
informations telling it that another server should be asked for this 
operation instead, then I'd really like python-ldap to do all the 
dirty work automatically for me, and in the worst case, tell my 
program it can't but "here-is-the-server-to-ask-instead" : in this 
case I'd modify my program to do another bind and retry the 
operation there, but if python-ldap already does this for me then I 
couldn't be more happy...
