+1 to delete, l don't think they are widely used. OTOH i think we should
have another method to check the presence of attributetyp

Hi guys,

as I'm now reviewing the Entry classes, I'm wondering if we should keep all
the constructors we have, or if we would rather remove those we don't use.

For instance, we have a couple of constrcutors which are never used :
DefaultEntry( Attribute...)
DefaultEntry( SchemaManager, Attribute...)

It creates an Entry from a list of Attribute instances.

It *might* be convenient, but we never ever use it. Should I keep it, or
should I remove the methods ? (YAGNI principle)

wdyt ?
