Ok. I will launch a vote then.

Thanks guys !

Btw, Stefan, I was wondering if defining our own "ldap certification" 
would worth the effort. The idea is to define tests for a better 
coverage of LDAP operations, using some tool to define, in order to run 
them against ADS, and potentially any LDAP server. Or maybe we can 
extend VSLDAP test suite.

Here, I think you will have a better idea than myself about the load it 
will be. In fact, I'm a bit fed up of writing unit tests when we can run 
a complete set of common tests, and also because usually, when I define 
a unit tests, I'm noyt always 100% sure what should be the behavior of a 
correct LDAP server, and it leads to some inconsistency (see the Modify 
operation problems we are dealing with).

wdyt ?
