Emmanuel, your guess is as good as mine.  It's been over a year and a 
half since I looked at the client code. 

Jeff Machols (primary guy who was working client code) and I started 
talking about building an LDAP test suite for both performance and for 
protocol testing.  We were going to use it to collect information about 
how well ApacheDS performs in relation to other servers.  I think some 
of the XML work was to design test cases around client requests for this 
purpose.  Perhaps if Jeff is listening he can shed some light on this.

The stuff in client top pkg look almost exactly the same as the 
standalone stuff.  I have no idea why Jeff may have structured it this 
way.  Perhaps he was going to do some refactoring but descided not to 
after copying stuff into a new package.  That too does not make sense 
since he would have copied the trunk to branches.

Here's my recommendation to you.  If you want to totally revamp this go 
right ahead.  Take what ever you can use from it and we'll just replace 
the trunk with new code (granted if it passes review which I think it 

Is this preferrable for you?
