Let me explain what I see as an issue : currently, shared-ldap depends 
on MINA even if we don't use MINA at all (like Studio which is currently 
using JNDI). Why would someone using only this part has to embed MINA too ?

Also the only link we have with mina here is because the 
LdapProtocolEncoder is implementing a MINA class to encode a message. 
Nowhere in shared do we call the encode method.

This is what I'd like to get rid of.
