I agree and would like to discuss some more steps before releasing the API:
- should we rename the package names o.a.d.shared or keep it?
- about the number of modules, should we merge some? Especially the
ldap-schema* modules contain only 10 classes splitted into 3 modules.
- the shared-ldap module contains some packages that are not directly
related to a client API: aci, sp, trigger, subtree.Should we still
keep them in the ldap-api project or move them to a server module?

At last before publishing an API we should decide which classes we
consider as public API and which classes are for internal use only.
