Hmm, being rather old-fashioned I'm not familiar with the context manager
paradigm which was introduced in Python 2.5. It seems to be elegant but I'm
not sure how common this is for developers using python-ldap.

So far my posting "Minimum Python version supported by python-ldap?" sent 2nd
August 2011 did not receive any answers...but this is relevant for that.
