Well, the parser might not be perfect :/ Worth a JIRA, IMO.

Actually I like it how it is.  The problem is that filter.toString() can
produce things like (cn=bobs group(not jims))  which is the correct way
to look at it as to string I think.  But it cannot be parsed, because
the parens would have to be escaped.  I don't think they should be
escaped in the toString function, that is why I did not enter a Jira
