Hmmm, didn't realize that. I will now wave my magic wand and we'll all
pretend I never sent out that last message. :)

When Python 3000 comes out it will have python-ldap as part of the
standard library and our work will be done! ;) Checking the major
version is trivial to do; I just didn't include it as python-ldap won't
work with 1.x (right?), and I assumed that Python 3.x will require some
major structural changes in the entire codebase. I take your point,

Does anyone have any objections to the attached patch, then?
