IMO, we should rename it to something like ldapApi

aci are likely to be used on the client side, as you may want to 
manipulate them on the browser. The very same for subtree.

sp and trigger is a bit different, but again, as this is up to the 
'client' to inject SP and triggers into the server, I *think* they might 
remain on the client API.
