Regarding tests there's this section in TODO:

- Clean up and finish the mess of small test scripts started.
- Create a test script that exercises everything with a server
   holding the BLITS test data set

So basically there is no test suite which allows you to check a Python3 
implementation of python-ldap. :-(

Usually when doing modifications I test with my web2ldap which triggers 
most code within python-ldap even when just connecting and SASL binding 
to my local test server.

The bad URL tests in Tests/t_ldapurl.py fail because syntax checking for 
various data in LDAP URLs is not implemented yet but David added very 
strict test cases. The parser is quite liberal and leaves stricter 
checks up to the calling application. This is debatable though.

Ciao, Michael.
