Hi Michael,

Ok, many thanks.

IMHO the documentation about this creates a bit 'of confusion:
OPT_SIZELIMIT is listed in options settable via ldap.set_option()

> If you actually want to retrieve the partial results until

Yes, resiter is very cool.
I'm grateful for your work in python-ldap library: a beautiful piece of code.
