My two cents for anyone wanting to start on it.
1) Start by either getting _ldap.so to work with python 3.x, *OR*
replace _ldap.so with pure python calling 'ctypes' that maintains close
to the same interface.  The latter will probably be quicker to develop.
The former will work on less loved OSes like AIX.
2) Look at the python-ldap APIs you actually use and start getting them
clean for python 3.x.
