Thanks for the suggestions and code examples. I'll work on adding this new control and let
you know if I have any issues.

FTR, the code I provided yesterday night in one of my previous mail took
me around 30 mins, all included. For a more complex control, like
syncrepl, that would have takne a bit more time, mainly because you want
to add unit tests to cover teh various cases.

Now, I think that we should provide a bit of documentation about how to
implement a control...
