I understand.

I agree that this is a better solution for now.

BTW, python-ldap looks a little bit complicated to use. I wonder if it  
has other functions just like ldap.open, making the API look more  
complicated than it actually is. I think it would be nice for  
python-ldap to have a major release with a simpler API.

I'll write a smaller API on top of python-ldap to ease the most  
frequent use cases (simple authentication, searching, etc). If you  
like the idea, maybe we can work together on it.

Thank you!

PS: Sorry for the bad english.
