They are two problems:
- First, encode data when sending request to ldap server.
Do you know an drawback to encode any unicode sting into utf-8 ?
-Second, decode data coming back from the server.
The only function to retrieve data is search(), right ?
what about the use of this kind of request ?
ldap_con.search_s(base_dn, ldap.SCOPE_BASE, filter, ['cn', 'mail',
u'givenName', u'sn' ])
that way, python-lib know that attribute givenName and sn should be
decoded into unicode string.
Do you see any other problems ?
