I just wanted to inform you I made a bunch of improvements to your
openldap plugin recently:


If by any chance you still use it, I'd be interested by your feedback !

Andrew: if you're still planning to use this plugin, I was able to build
it against an existing installation of collectd using:
  gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Wall -Werror -g -O2 -shared -fPIC \
    -I/usr/include/collectd/core/ -ldl -lldap -o openldap.so openldap.c
(after installing the openldap-devel/libldap2-dev package)

My plan is to test this on a bunch of servers for a bit, then once I'm
happy with it, rebase the branch against current master and (re)submit
it for inclusion.

Thanks !
