Probably not.  I doubt there is much more work to be done for the LDAP
code.  It is a fairly thin layer (although it isn't as thin as I'd like 
it, but that's me).  

As I see it, the problem is that if we add any features in httpd that
require LDAP (mod_auth_ldap, httpd configuration via LDAP), you now 
need to check out apr-ldap.  Yuck.

Based on the way Ryan tells it, apr-util should be the kitchen sink of
things that don't belong in apr or in httpd.  I think we agree it
doesn't belong in APR as it is not adding core portability features.
I don't think it belongs in httpd as I could definitely use such code
in other projects not associated with httpd.  apr-util seems the most
logical place, IMHO.  -- justin
