Well... the question is are there modules out there that use util_ldap

right now?

I think being experimental, the module is subject to incompatible
anyway, and there seems to be a catch 22 situation here - the module is

currently broken, but the fix cannot be applied without an MMN bump (if

it was a fully fledged module). I think to break this catch 22 
situation, it seems reasonable to apply the changes to v2.0 without an

MMN bump as the code is experimental. Any other thoughts?
