Subject Dn should probably not implement Comparable
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2011 15:23:13 GMT

the compareTo method has a semantic that probably does not applies to 
the Dn class : either two DNs are equals, or they are different, but 
they aren't superior or inferior, except if one is the parent of the other.

As we already have a isParent and isChild methods, I suggest we remove 
the compareTo() methods (which is never used) and not implemen the 
Comparable<Dn> interface.

Thoughts ?
