Don't trust GTrend. I can tell you one thing here : AD coms first, with
around 80% of the market, then OpenLDAP is really the second contended.
Every other LDAP servers count for a few percent.

It's simply because AD is installed in every Windows Domain server, and
OpenLDAP is widely spread on Linux. Even Sun Directory never countd for
more than a few thousands installations.

But anyway, this is irrelevant : Radovan is spot on here. We have two
modes in the API, a strict mode and a relaxed mode, now, it's us to
provide the fioxes in teh API so that the relaxed mode works well for
the most frequently used servers, and also for the ones that are likely
to be used in the neear future (here, I'm talking about OpenDS/J).
