Thanks!  I'll review, this certainly sounds like it influences my own
opinion.

It would be, but it's necessary.  The ASF is a collaborative environment;
unreviewed code should not released, even when the authors are committers.
A major patch like this hitting svn, without previous review, makes our
fellow committers' eyes glaze over.

If there is not positive feedback from two reviewers, this code does not
belong in trunk/.  As a committer, you are *free* to create your own
sandboxes in svn to demonstrate code changes, if that helps attract the
necessary review.

Not well [with respect to AAA, or LDAP specifically] - this is one of
the concerns about 2.3 and the need for an extended review period, in
spite of how many terrific changes sit on trunk.
