Yeah, when I benchmarked SUN DS for Symas, we got the same response from 
them.  If you closely read their obnoxious license, it clearly states you 
are not allowed to publish benchmarks of their product.  Same with 
e-directory, IIRC.

RedHat has expressed interest in setting up a benchmark lab w/ Symas for 
doing fair comparisons of FDS & OpenLDAP.  Maybe we could all work together 
towards that end.
