That was an intentional decision, with a lot of strong reasons behind it. You
seem to be ignoring all the discussion that went into this before.
I think the correct patch for review should be to remove this feature.
If someone really, really wants this, it should not be very hard at all
to create a deamon that listens on a temporary, per-user ldapi://
socket, and does an EXTERNAL bind on another (ns-slapd) socket before
passing the rest of the stream along.
If this is being setup to be enabled, what is the consumer of the API?
If not, why is this being made more visible?
