> RFC 2849 states that a ldif file must start with the 'version: 1' string. LdifParserImpl
does accept files that don't respect this rule.
> It was marked Trivial as this is really not an issue : Microsoft(TM) ldifde.exe tool
accept those kind of files (even worse : it does NOT accept files with a 'version: 1' string
...). I think that it should be an option, but at least, it should verify that the version
number is '1', if present ! (p.5, par.1) 
> BTW, RFC2849 is not very clear on this subject, and could be interpreted as "If <version-spec>
is absent, ..." instead of "If version number is absent..."
