some thoughts :
- we have discussed this extensively in Portland last year with Ludovic, 
and we aggreed that the API must be schema aware
- we must provide a common set of schema (probably core, cosine, system 
and inetorgperson is the absolute minimum subset)
- it should be possible for the user to request that the schema is 
loaded from the server
- it should be possible to create a connection with a reference to the 
loaded schema
- I don't think it's a good idea to request the server for the schema 
when creating a connection. Either teh schema already exists, or no. If 
not we use the default schema.
- the user should be allowed to extend the schema with his own schema 
- I suggest that the format for such schema extensio to be the OpenLDAP 
schema format, as it's concise enough
