Boy what can I say? Thanks for your kind words Mark.  You're one of our first most loyal users and you have dealt with ApacheDS issues for a long time.  I'm glad to see you getting a benefit for sticking with us and our vision for so long.

I'd like to chime in and say that the existing architecture enabled me
to implement a form of triggers, stored procs, dynamic views, and a new
way of handling indexes.  Also, thanks to the flexibility of the design
I was able to implement an entirely new back end (partition) based on an
existing replicated clustered caching system.

The point I'm trying to make is that I have no idea how I would have
accomplished this without ADS. To be useful to me an LDAP server has to
be extensible. ADS is extensible in exactly the way I (a humble software
developer just trying to get LDAP stuff to work) needs it to be.

Thank you (ADS developers) for making ADS.
