How relevant is apr_ldap_url.c?  Which SDK's don't support
ldap_url_parse()?  Doing a quick search it appears that Novell, OpenLDAP
and Netscape SDK's support it.

This code was moved from util_ldap.c. It compiles, but has not been run

The purpose of this piece of code is to provide a replacement of 
ldap_init() that knows about secure connections, and can hide toolkit 
specific stuff. It still returns an LDAP structure as defined by the C

Next is to move the util_ldap_connection_t structure into apr-util, 
which will allow us to follow the same pattern of structure creation as

used elsewhere in APR.

The code as it stands achieves the task of moving all the #ifdefs out
util_ldap - we may want to wait for apr v1.0.1 before worrying about 

Next task: namespace protect what is in apr_ldap_url.
