If they need the broken implementation, they can keep using 0.9 - in the
meantime let's design the right interface by 1.1 and completely REMOVE,
not 'deprecate' the existing flavor.

Deprecation isn't getting rid of a feature until the next release.  This IS
the next release, so just branch 1.1-dev, and remove the ldap files on the
1.0 branch, knock out the config.m4 magic, and we have a valid 1.0 release.

I'll vote -1 on this sheist - however that's just a vote.  Shall see if anyone
else is this disgusted.

David, if we are at 1.0, shall we branch 1.1 right now and I'll do the dirty
deed myself tomorrow night at the hotel?
